John V. Denson discusses the world-changing events that happened between January and June 1919: disastrous decisions that resulted in creating a platform for Hitler to rise in Germany, the Second World War, and beyond. Three men were responsible for these events: Woodrow Wilson, Georges Clemenceau of France and David Lloyd George of the UK. John Denson views WWI and WWII as a single war with an interim pause.

Presented as part of the Mises Institute's Summer Seminar Series on July 20, 2005 in Auburn, Alabama.
