The treaty of Versaillies was the official end of WW1. The terms of this treaty were how Germany and the other central powers would be able to continue their lifestyles now that the war was over. In the treaty Germany lost much of its land, and its military was reduced to only 100,000 men. Their navy was stripped of its submarines and it could only haul 10,000 lbs of cargo. All in all Germany was severly punished.
