The peace treaties signed at the end of the war are unilateral, tough on Germany
and spark resentment in the Central Powers.
Women get the vote, factories outpaces farm and Canadian goes dry, but not for
Canada's leading role in the Great War puts it on the diplomatic global stage

The war comes full circle and ends where
it began, in the Belgian city of Mons on November 11, 1918. 48,830 Canadians
have been killed, wounded or went missing. The terms of the armistice are hard
on Germany which will lose the territory it gained in the war, pay reparation
and will feel humiliated. Many historians feel the seeds of WWII are planted.
