Furthermore, even after the publication of the Versailles Treaty, territorial dispute, ethnic cleansing and armed conflict continued to be the order of the day in central and southern Europe. There were abortive revolutions in Germany, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland. Indeed, The Vanquished is a work of considerable and convincing scholarship. And as Gerwarth emphasises in The Vanquished, the conventional periodization of the First World War known to most western history students —18 seems wholly inadequate when we consider the sheer scale of the violence and bloodletting that continued to blight much of central, eastern and southern Europe for half a decade after hostilities on the Western Front formally ended.
The proceedings were dominated by the French Premier Georges Clemenceau and the British Prime Minister David Lloyd George - both of them pushed by vengeful electorates to make somewhat harsher demands of their adversaries than they might otherwise have made. But the treaty also caused a number of serious problems. The hard-nosed realists in the OHL and their associates knew otherwise. Three days later, the United States broke diplomatic relations with Germany, and just hours after that the American liner Housatonic was sunk by a German U-boat.

The lengthy deliberations seriously disrupted planning for the German spring offensive that was to begin on 21 March The Entente and its allies would eventually become known as the Allied Powerswhile the grouping of Austria-Hungary, Germany and their allies would become known as the Central Powers.

Right-wing regimes also emerged in Spain, Portugal and Bulgaria largely as a response to revolutionary upheaval.

The navy mutinied in November, when orders were issued for the High Sea's Fleet to launch a massive attack on the Royal Navy in an attempt to sabotage the armistice negotiations. But the triumph of the Central Powers would prove to be short lived and the outcome of the war was decided in the west, where Ludendorff gambled on an all-or-nothing offensive against the Allies and, fatefully, lost.
President Wilson was outraged, but the German government apologized and called the attack an unfortunate mistake.
