For six months, the world's major leaders-including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France-met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War I. The Peace Conference dealt with, among other things, winding up the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, punishing Germany, creating Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Iraq, setting up the League of Nations and the International Labour Organization, regulating international waterways and aviation, and feeding refugees. A great war had just ended and political and social structures were collapsing in parts of Europe and the Middle East. New borders had to be established. Much of the world we live in today is shaped by decisions made all those years ago
