    France: Georges Clemenceau
    Georges Clemenceau was the French representative at the Paris Peace Conference. He wanted the Treaty of Versailles to ruin Germany, where as Britain wanted a non-emotive approach to the punishments. He was appointed the the French Prime Minister in 1906 and lasted for two and three quarter years, the second longest in the history of the Third Republic. Then he was appointed the Prime Minister once again in 1917 November and led the French delegation at the peace talks.
    GB: David Lloyd George
    David Lloyd George was a British politician. His main aim for the Versailles Treaty was to stay on good terms with Germany. Even though he believed Germany should pay for the damage they have caused, he didn't want to end on bad terms with Germany since he was afraid it'd spark another war, and also because Germany was one of the major trading partner with his own country, Britain.

    US: Woodrow Wilson and the Fourteen Points
    Woodrow Wilson was the 28th elected president of United States. During his presidency, he concentrated on issues such as anti-trust legislation to ensure that the citizens of America got a fair system, and reorganizing of the federal banking system. During the Paris Peace Conference, President Wilson promotes those in power to be punished, but not the people. He suggested The Fourteen Points and League of Nations to maintain peace and harmony in the world. However, both the Fourteen Points and the League of Nation were just empty ideas and empty words that were not effective and not taken into action. He was an idealist with great ideas but far from achievable and realistic.

    1. No more secret agreements ("Open covenants openly arrived at").
