1919, France took Alsae and Lorraine back from Germany. and (sort of) too the Rhine River valley, or Rhineland as well, by making it a demilitarized zone. But this is getting a bit ahead of matters--more on the

France, from Switzerland to the English Channel The Eastern front was in (surprise!) Eastern Europe. Trench Warfare Digging in = only way to be (somewhat) safe vs. artillery, machine guns, etc. (partly due to being so close to enemy: 50-100 yards, in places). Defensive strength of trenches was SO great that neither side could overcome the other;

result = 4 years of stalemate.

Mining Poison gas Tanks Result of failure of these was war of attrition: win by using

up enemys resources (soldiers, war materiel, etc.) War of attrition = disheartening. Long term effect: disillusioned, disheartened view of the war, of war & Western society in general.

Horrors of trench warfare, and overall suffering of the war led to harsh peace terms. Woodrow Wilson (U.S. President) tries force peace-keeping terms: 14 Points (see hand-out)

Germany views peace terms as impossible/unfair--sees itself as victim (Hitler plays on this). WW2 results. Lost Generation--even the survivors suffer, but also, a whole generation of young men were lost. European dominance is shaken. Modern Middle East takes shape.
