Teacher essay summary

4 star(s)

This is a strong response that offers a good range of reasons and is balanced by considering both sides of the argument. The sub headings are unnecessary as the author's structure is clear enough and the points are valid but evidence is a little thin in places. 4 out of 5 stars.

Were the peace treaties of 1919 - 1923 fair?

Introduction

After World War I various peace treaties were made, the most important and well known being the Treaty of Versailles. At the Treaty of Versailles there was disagreement, France wanted Germany to be punished as severely as possible whereas Britain and the USA realized that punishing Germany too harshly would only cause far worse problems later on. Britain and France both wanted to capitalize on World War I and gain German and Turkish colonies, the USA was against this and considered this kind of behaviour imperialistic however a compromise was reached and the colonies were divided among the winning powers and ran on behalf of the League of Nations.

Meanwhile in Eastern Europe various other treaties were being signed - The Treaty of Neuilly, The Treaty of Trianon, The Treaty of Saint-Germain, The Treaty of Sèvres and finally the Treaty of Lausanne. Although none of these treaties were as important as Versailles they would all affect peace in Europe in the years following the First World War.
