Georges Clemenceau: France

The Anglo-Saxon view of Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) is based on John Maynard Keynes’s misjudged caricature, that he had imposed a treaty that was harsh and oppressive of Germany. French critics’ view, however, is that he had been too lenient, and left Germany in a position to challenge the treaty. In fact the treaty was a just settlement, and it could have been maintained. The failure was not in the terms of the treaty but in the subsequent failure to insist on maintaining them in the face of German resistance.
