THE FIRST WORLD WAR: A DOCUMENTARY RECORD
Series One: European War 1914-1919, the War Reserve Collection from Cambridge University Library

Part 9: Peace, Versailles and the League of Nations

“The military, economic, diplomatic and political history of the war is abundantly documented.”
Dr J M Winter, Department of History, Yale University
.

The War Reserve Collection at Cambridge University Library is one of the finest collections in the world of materials documenting the First World War.  

Part 9 covers the aftermath of War.  If the Great War was 'the War to end all wars', was Versailles 'the Peace to end all peace?'

There is material covering:

  • Efforts to bring peace before and during the War;
  • The Versailles Treaty;
  • Calls for retribution and calls for reconciliation;
  • The League of Nations;
  • Woodrow Wilson and the American vision of post-war Europe;
  • Colonial reconstruction and the redistribution of Germany's colonies;
  • The economic impact of the Peace settlement.
