WAR: The Legacy of Versailles

Mark Steyn's Veterans Day remembrance has it right, as usual - we are still living with the residue of World War I. I spent a good deal of my high school and college career (I was a history major) poring over the manifold disasters and missed opportunities that followed the Great War. There's hardly been a conflict in the world these last 84 years that can't be traced to the botched peace treaties and other follies of that era - in Russia, in Germany, in Yugoslavia, in Palestine/Israel, in Vietnam, in Iraq, in Ireland.
