In my opinion...absolutely and in so many ways. I think the Versailles Treaty virtually guaranteed a World War Part 2. Germany had to accept the sole war guilt of starting WW1, when there were so many others involved. Their economy, already ruined, was hit for war reparations and the ensuing revolutions and hyper-inflation was a breeding ground for fanatical factions like the National Socialists and Hitler to rise to power. Their biggest industrial area, the Ruhr was occupied by the French. Don't get me wrong, Germany certainly brought a lot of it on herself, but the Allies also had dirty hands. France, Britain and Italy, who's economies also were nearly ruined, tried to extract as much from the defeated Central Powers as possible-- plus the territory under their control was greatly expanded. Also, there was a lot of instability in Europe: the Balkans, new nations like Poland, Russia's collapse and lots of civil wars after WW1 ended. Just my 2 cents.
