Altho, of course, the guns didn't actually stop firing on 11/11/1918. Conflicts associated with WWI continued in Russia, Poland and Turkey on into the early 1920s. The War itself did not formally conclude until 28th June 1919, with the signing of the Versailles Treaty (which is why many war memorials in the UK have the latter year on them).

Ah, didn't know that about the continuation, thanks,

My late Dad always blamed some of the points of the Versailles Treaty as key in leading to WW2.

If you watch the old 70's World at War the US historian Steven Ambrose makes the point that here werent major two wars Europe in the 20th century but one major war with a 20 year ceasefire

That's what the WW1 Supreme Allied Commander (Marshall Foch) said at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919.

To an extent, altho more used by the German right wing (including the nazis) as a rabble-rousing cause than any real ill effects. The economic collapse of Germany was less to do with Reparations - with which they received considerable help in the form of loans and payment extensions - than the global economic depression and the after-effects of a long and expensive war followed by civil unrest and weak government.

The Versailles Treaty may have seemed harsh, but it was milder than the Germans' own plans for the peace they would have imposed had they won: Belgium essentially a protectorate, France disarmed with all its main coal and industrial areas annexed and vast reparations, colonies seized, land taken in the east. As reflected in the treaties they did impose upon Romania in 1917 and revolutionary Russia early the following year.
