Paris Peace Treaties and the League of Nations, to 1933
The Paris Peace Treaties officially ended WWI. The Treaty of Versailles was disliked on all sides, particularly in Germany. The League of Nations was set up to improve international cooperation and avert further wars. Its impact was limited.
areas such as Iraq and Palestine became British mandates
Syria became a French mandate
the Straits of the Dardanelles would be placed under international control
Armenia became an independent country
The treaty provoked a backlash in Turkey. Turkish nationalists, led by Kemel Attaturk, rebelled against the Sultan and rejected the treaty. In 1923 a new treaty was signed at Lausanne in Switzerland. This removed foreign control over the economy. Turkey also regained land and some control over the Dardanelles.
