1.  War Guilt: The war guilt clause forced Germany to take full blame for the war.
2.  Reparations: It was agreed that Germany would pay full reparations for the damage done in the war.
                      By 1921 it was decided that the amount to pay back by Germany was  6600 million pounds
3.  German Territories and colonies:  Germany lost 13.5% of it's colonies including:
                                                   -All overseas territories.
                                                   -Alsace and Lorraine went to france
                                                   -West Prussia, Posen and Upper Silesia to Poland

4.  League of Nations:  -Was set up as a police force
                               -The aims of the League were: To ensure peace in the future.  To ensure the
terms of the Treaty were kept
