This chapter examines the policy-making process as it developed before the Versailles Peace Conference of 1919. The essence of the dilemma for Woodrow Wilson and his colleagues at Versailles was that there had never been an attempt at a 'worldwide settlement', and indeed there has never been one since. The First World War has arguably had the longest lasting and deepest effect of all the events of the twentieth century. The First World War acted as the catalyst for the emergence of an New World Order (NWO) agenda that has undergone constant evolution ever since while maintaining its basic essence. At the Versailles Peace Conference in 1919 the leaders of the West, Woodrow Wilson, David Lloyd George, Georges Clemenceau and Vittorio Orlando, had to try and resurrect the phoenix of peace and prosperity from the ashes of war.
