Woodrow Wilson's 14 points

(0)
This resource explores what Woodrow Wilson’s 14 points were and how each point could be categorised e.g. economic, military, etc. This provides students with a strong understanding of the armistice terms that Germany agreed to. A clear contrast can be drawn with the ‘wants’ of Clemenceau and Loyd George. It helps to support to understand why the students felt disgruntled about the terms of the Treaty of Versailles.
