Why did the US have these aims?The USA was not keen to be entangled in European affairs and was more concerned about making the world a safer place.The USAs war experience was different from Britain and France.Unlike France, it had not been invaded in WW1. It had also entered the war late. In 1917. Hence the USA suffered very little and was not compelled to seek harsh reparations.
BRITAIN PRIME MINISTERBritain wanted justice, but not revenge. It wanted to punish Germany but still needed Germany for its own political reasons.However, PM Lloyd George was under pressure to make Germany pay a high price.
Why did the British PM have these aims?Britain was concerned with the threat of Communism. A strong Germany could stop the threat of Communism.Britain, with its weakened economy believed a recovered Germany would help to boost the economy of Europe. She also wanted Germany to resume their trading partnership.However, Britain also had suffered large numbers of casualties during WW1. Prime Minister Lloyd George had won the election promising to make Germany pay.
FRANCES PRIME MINISTERFrance wanted revenge on Germany and compensation for its war damage.It wanted Germanys reparations to be as large as possible. France wanted Germany to accept total blame for the war. France wanted to reclaim Alsace-Lorraine, which was lost to Germany in 1871.
