The largest provision, and the one that caused the most uproar was this: "Germany [had to] accept the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage." Soon known as the "War Guilt Clause," its inclusion was extremely controversial. The treaty forced Germany to disarm, give up a large amount of territory, as well as pay reparations to a number of countries.
