1
On November 11 1918 the First World War ended.
2
How had the war affected Britain?
  • 750,000 British soldiers had been killed, many
    more were wounded or even disabled.
  • The war had cost Britain 9 billion pounds. At
    the end of the war it was costing the country 16
    million per day.
  • The war had devastated the British economy and
    Britains position as the richest nation in the
    world had been lost. We had lost many of our
    world trade markets
  • Local communities were devastated.

3
What did the British Public think we should do
about Germany?
  • What kinds of things do you think the British
    public and our newspapers were saying about
    Germany?
  • Write 3 slogans.

4
Slogans being used at the time
  • Hang the Kaiser
  • Squeeze Germany until the pips squeak
  • We want REVENGE
  • NEVER AGAIN
  • This MUST be the war to END all wars
  • Make Germany Pay
  • Its all Germanys fault
  • The Huns killed my sons
  • Something good must come out of this
  • The Germans must be punished

5
Speech by David Lloyd George
  • The Prime Minister David Lloyd George had decided
    that a general election should be called to
    decide which party should run Britain and help us
    to recover after the war.
  • What do you think he would have said in order to
    win the votes of the British people?
  • Write his speech.

6
What are the risks in punishing Germany too
harshly?
  • GERMANY WOULD WANT REVENGE
  • OTHER COUNTRIES WILL BE ANNOYED WITH US
  • GERMANY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TRADE WITH BRITAIN

7
Lloyd George won the election in 1918, having
made promises, to treat Germany harshly.
  • BUT he knew the risks of doing so.
  • Imagine you are Lloyd George on the way to Paris
    for the conference that will decide what to do
    with Germany. Write what you think he would have
    been thinking.
