    The world will never see another peace conference like the one which took place in Paris in 1919. For six months, the world's major leaders - including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France - met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War One.

    Story

    The format is excellant with the author reading the lectures,the live voice gives extra intonation and feeling.The question were rather jarring and did not seem to be geniune.The recording opened my eyes to the ill conceived ingrained thought that this just a peace with Germany.
    The defining of many new coutries,altering borders and ethnic make up without opinions of the inhabitants in many cases produced a festering cancer. for which we are paying the price still.
    The problems in the Middle East are mainly based on these neat ruler lines for boundaries.
    I had never realised that by the time it was for Germany to sign the Allied Powers most likely did not have the power or will to invade Germany.
    The ongoing neurosis of France of being attacked by Germany is clevely expanded and lays the formation that the European Union to overcomes this.
    Would the Secind War have been prevented if the U.S.A had ratified the treaty and guarantied the peace by force??.A point I was not awareof.
    I now understand the subject so much better.Should be made compulsory content to all political based education.
