The treaty was signed in 1918 at the Place of Versilles just outside of Paris. It was signed by the Allied powers to agree to end the war with the Central powers. Although it may have ended the war, it began another. By signing the treaty, Germany took the name for WWI. It was very harsh on them, which left them feelings humiliated and vulnerable. Germany was left responsible for paying for the damage caused in WWI, which was 6 billion pounds, also known as reparations. German territory was given to neighbouring nations and their military limited to 100 000 men. This led Germany to break the terms of the treaty. Britain and France did not want another war, so they allowed this to happen and continued letting Germany disobey the treaty.
