1919628日签订的凡尔赛条约 (Treaty of Versailles) 为第一次世界大战划上句点

第一次世界大战 (19141918) 终于退出了。这第一场全球性的冲突造成9百万至13百万人死伤,而因为战争所造成的损坏也是前所未见的。德国在19181111日正式宣布投降,当和平条件谈判完成后,所有参战国也同意停止战争。西元1919628日,德国与协约国 (Allied Nations,包括英国、法国、义大利,与俄国) 签署了凡尔赛条约,正式终止了这场战争。 (凡尔赛是法国的一个城市,距离巴黎只有10英里远。) 然而,美国并没有签署这项条约,因为美国政府不同意条约的内容,尤其对德国需要为其是侵略者的角色而负担大笔赔偿的规定很有意见。美国后来在1921年自行与德国签署协定。你知道是什么导致这场冲突的爆发吗?有时人们又称它为「大战」 (Great War) 。

World War I (1914-1918) was finally over. This first global conflict had claimed from 9 million to 13 million lives and caused unprecedented damage. Germany had formally surrendered on November 11, 1918, and all nations had agreed to stop fighting while the terms of peace were negotiated. On June 28, 1919, Germany and the Allied Nations (including Britain, France, Italy and Russia) signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ending the war. (Versailles is a city in France, 10 miles outside of Paris.) The United States did not sign the treaty, however, because it objected to its terms, specifically, the high price that Germany was to pay for its role as aggressor. Instead, the U.S. negotiated its own settlement with Germany in 1921. Do you know what triggered the conflict, sometimes called the "Great War"?
