The history of the 1919 Paris peace talks following World War 1 is a blueprint of the political and social upheavals bedeviling the planet now. MacMillan's book reminds us of the main lesson learned at such a high cost in Paris in 1919: Peace is not something that can be imposed at the conference table. It can grow only from the hearts of people. For anyone interested in knowing how historic mistakes can morph into later historic problems, this brilliant book is a must-read.

The author is granddaughter of Britian's PM Lloyd George, but she appears to be fair and even handed in doling out negatives of the three leading figures who were mainly responsible for a fair ending of WWI. They meddled with countries all over the world and, for the most part, just made things worse.

She makes a convincing case that the universally accepted notion that France pressed unfair reparations on Germany that made WWII inevitable.
