There were a number of other treaties that dealt with the other defeated countries.

Treaty of St Germain (1919)[edit]

This treaty dealt with Austria. The terms were:

  • Bohemia and Moravia taken to form the new state of Czechoslovakia.
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia taken to form the new state of Yugoslavia.
  • Galicia given to Poland.
  • Some land lost to Italy.
  • It's army was restricted to 30 000 men, and it could not united with Germany.

Italy complained that they got very little, and felt that they should received more land. This was one of the reasons that they joined the Axis alliance in the Second World War. Austria had severe economic problems because lots of its industry had been given to Czechoslovakia.
