Paris Peace Conference:
Georges Clemenceau, Woodrow Wilson and David Lloyd George
on the day of the
signing of the Versailles Treaty.
With the end of the Great War, the
Russian, German, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires ceased to exist.
At least 8.5 million men were dead and 16 million wounded; over 37
million total casualties.
The diplomats attending the Paris Peace Conference, meeting at
the Palace of Versailles, intended to draft a general peace treaty to
end the state of war and to redraw the map of Europe. That did not happen.
