Welcome to PEACEMAKING IN PARIS, presented by PROFESSOR SIR HEW STRACHAN for UCL INSTITUTE OF EDUCATION and introduced by SIMON BENDRY, Director of UCL Institute of Education's First World War Centenary Battlefield Tours Programme. In 1919, the United States and Allied Powers met in Paris to decide the terms of the peace settlements with the defeated Central Powers. A century on, Sir Hew reflects on the Paris Peace Conference and its legacy. In an earlier series FROM AMIENS TO ARMISTICE (, Sir Hew looked at the sequence of Allied victories from the Battle of Amiens on 8 August 1918 to the Armistice negotiated by Germany on 11 November 1918. In THE ROAD TO PEACE, the first podcast in this series, Sir Hew considers the process that led Germany to seek an armistice, and the basis on which Germany thought the final peace settlement would be negotiated.
