Although primarily a diplomatic document, the Treaty of Versailles covered a wide range of subjects. Many of the articles of the treaty had little to do with Germany. The point was to reestablish a new world order based on a shared understanding of global ideals. However, “Drafting the treaty” explains that the core of the treaty dealt with ways to reduce the power of the new Germany—reducing its territory and its military power. The treaty’s first part dealt with Wilson’s prized League of Nations, with the remainder of Part 1 and some of Part 2 of the treaty fixing Germany’s new borders. An important part involved the setting of Germany’s reparations payments.
