Most sources date the Ruhr occupation from 1919 or 1920. Very confusing. Are they all wrong? (76.119.204.89 (talk) 03:55, 17 November 2010 (UTC))

WPMILHIST Assessment[edit]

lol. It's rare to see an article that's shorter than its bibliography. LordAmeth 06:29, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

And yet there's no footnotes. If I knew which cleanup tag was approative for bibliographic sources without footnotes, I'd place it at the top of the article. Jon (talk) 14:08, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Apparently you've never looked inside an academic German work before. :-) Historian932 (talk) 15:15, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Absurd hyperbole[edit]

"Particularly galling to the French was that the timber quota the Germans defaulted on was based on an assessment of their capacity the Germans made themselves and subsequently lowered"—"galling" to the French? The entire TofV was radically punitive, this is like calling it "offensive" if a slave doesn't jump high enough when his "master" tells himt to. Combined with later sentences arguing that the *British* wanted harsher measures, which opening lines in the *same* paragraph say was the *reverse* this article needs some serious rewrite by someone who knows the topic well. Right now it smells of contradiction and French supremacism. Historian932 (talk) 15:13, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Apparently you did not look into how human minds work. There is no supremacism over here: French merely had a crisis of their capabilities not corresponding to their wanted ideals, combined with a humilation resulted from how the war must have looked stupid to them, and how their ideals were being betrayed. Whenever someone is trying to deceive you, you feel offended, that is how it normally functions, whether you like it or not. Meanwhile, there is no human and no country who does not think opposite things at the same time; yet the article does not say that British wanted "harsher" measures, it says they did not want the milder measures, this is a very different thing. - 91.122.12.137 (talk) 09:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Lithuanian takeover[edit]

The occupation of Memelland - which happened at the same time with the diplomatic support of the war winners - should also be added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.166.184.14 (talk) 21:47, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Sympathy for Germany[edit]

"Internationally the occupation did much to boost sympathy for Germany, although no action was taken in the League of Nations since it was technically legal under the Treaty of Versailles." The first part sounds very vague. Maybe there's a point to specify what the word 'internationally' means, and what this sympathy manifested itself in? - 91.122.12.137 (talk) 08:51, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
