for the damage. It left Germany vulnerable to attack. Germany lost all its colonies. They complained because it was dictated. The high reparations affected the ordinary citizens. Germany thought they had been humiliated. It was fair as Germany had agreed to an armistice. It was not as harsh as the treaty imposed on Russia by Germany. It did not weaken the German economy as much as Germany implied. 23 Level 3 - Explanation of Germanys genuine grounds for complaint OR Explanation showing Germany did not have genuine grounds eg Germany was forced to accept the war guilt clause and thus reparations. This was humiliating as they believed other countries were equally responsible for the start of the war.

The Treaty could have been as harsh as the BrestLitovsk treaty German made with Russia. 46 Level 4 - Explanation showing Germanys genuine grounds for complaint AND Explanation showing Germany did not have genuine grounds Maximum of eight marks for answer lacking balance. Both sides of Level 3. 79 Level 5 - Explains with evaluation of how far Must have both sides of argument with evaluation of how far Level 4 plus evaluation of how far eg Germany did not have good reason to complain. They had supported their allies, Austria against Serbia and then declared war with Russia and so could not complain about being blamed however, the harshness of the reparations did affect those who were not responsible, the general public and so in this aspect the complaint was just. 10 SECTION A: THE INTER-WAR YEARS, 1919-1939
