Indd 28 10/10/2012 5:37:07 AM CHAPTER TWO The Versailles Peace Settlement and the Collective Security System FRÉDÉRIC DESSBERG At the end of the Paris Peace Conference, the Treaty of Versailles was signed between Germany and the victorious powers on June 28, 1919. Thus ended World War I. Other treaties were to be signed with the allies of Germany – Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire – in the following months but the Versailles treaty was regarded as the most important. It aimed to prevent any new conflict of the scale of the Great War.

On Germany’s refusal of a British demand to end hostilities, Britain and France declared war on Germany, followed by Canada, Australia and New Zealand with the Union of South Africa doing so a bit later while Eire remained neutral. The Soviet Union would join in the attack on Poland two weeks later after arriving at a truce with Japan, while the latter and Italy waited to see how the war would go before committing themselves. The American government had formally asked the belligerents to refrain from bombing civilian targets and was answered by a German bomb dropped on its Warsaw embassy grounds.
