The Aims of the Leaders at the Paris Peace Conference

The Aims of the Leaders at the Paris Peace Conference

The final conditions of the Treaty of Versaille were determined by the leaders of the "Big Three" nations: British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau, and American President Woodrow Wilson. Even with this smaller group it was difficult to decide on a common position because their aims conflicted with one another. The result has been called the "unhappy compromise." This lesson examines what each of the Big Three wanted and why - and suggests why they may not have been successful.
