American View of the Great War.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

American View of the Great War The Great War is over. Our boys are flooding back home as heroes. The American people can finally get on with their lives without a war hanging over their heads like a stormy cloud. For-as the Newark Press has today exclusively learned, President Wilson has closed the peace treaty with Germany. The Treaty of Versailles was closed 6 days ago, on the 28th of June by the leaders of the allies-the French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau, the British Prime Minister Lloyd George, the Italian Prime Minister Vittorio Orlando and our own President Wilson.
