Between January and July 1919, after "the war to end all wars," men and women from around the world converged on Paris to shape the peace. Center stage was an American president, Woodrow Wilson, who with his Fourteen Points seemed to promise to so many people the fulfillment of their dreams. Stern, intransigent, impatient when it came to security concerns and idealistic in his dream of a League of Nations that would resolve all future conflict peacefully, Wilson is only one of the characters who fill the pages of this book. David Lloyd George, the British prime minister, brought Winston Churchill and John Maynard Keynes. Lawrence of Arabia joined the Arab delegation. Ho Chi Minh, a kitchen assistant at the Ritz, submitted a petition for an independent Vietnam. For six months, Paris was effectively the center of the world as the peacemakers carved up bankrupt empires and created new countries. This book brings to life the personalities, ideals, and prejudices of the men who shaped the settlement. They pushed Russia to the sidelines, alienated China, and dismissed the Arabs. They struggled with the problems of Kosovo, of the Kurds, and of a homeland for the Jews. The peacemakers, so it has been said, failed dismally; above all they failed to prevent another war. Margaret MacMillan argues that they have unfairly been made the scapegoats for the mistakes of those who came later. She refutes received ideas about the path from Versailles to World War II and debunks the widely accepted notion that reparations imposed on the Germans were in large part responsible for the Second World War.… (més)

Couldn’t finish. Not in the mood. Full of details. Too full of details. I didn’t care. Did read far enough to understand Woodrow Wilson was a completely nasty man. ( )

Extraordinarily dense with fascinating information. And so many great maps printed at the start! ( )

MacMillan relates in fascinating detail the origins, debates and outcomes of the negotiations to end the first World War. She first offers introductions to the principal negotiators and relates the various domestic and historical factors that shaped the final results, the borders of central and eastern European nations as well as in the Middle East, East Asia and Africa. I particularly appreciated her character portraits and the attention she pays to places not often covered in depth, like the Shantung area of China which gave Japan a large foothold there. A wonderfully written history of a complex set of negotiations whose outcomes influence international relations one hundred years later. ( )

Excellent read. I would recommend a person having a thorough knowledge of WWI prior to reading this to get maximum enjoyment. ( )
  redbird_fan | Jan 13, 2020 |
A fabulous book. Hard to put down. An important read to understand the Europe of today. Looks at the important treaties after World War I and how the personalities (Wilson, Lloyd George, Clemenceau, Orlando) shaped them. ( )
