The results of the Paris Peace Conference (mainly the Treaty of Versailles) created problems in postwar Europe mostly because of how they treated Germany.  The Treaty of Versailles treated Germany very harshly.  Germany was dismembered, with parts of it being taken away and given to other country.  Germany was also punished economically and militarily.  The treaty limited the size and nature of the German military.  The treaty forced Germany to pay reparations that crippled its economy.  By doing all of these things, the treaty ensured that Germany would want revenge.  The German desire for revenge was the major cause of World War I.
