Georges Clemenceau: France: Makers of the Modern World

Overview

For many, the role of Georges Clemenceau is still based on John Maynard Keynes’ misjudged caricature—that he had imposed a treaty of overwhelming harshness and severity. The French, however, have often maintained that that he was too lenient. David Watson considers the implications of Clemenceau’s actions, his legacy, and what it subsequently entailed for the French.
