"A continuation of the war by other means."
Brockdorff-Rantzau on the Treaty of Versailles[src]

Ulrich von Brockdorff-Rantzau was leader of the German delegation at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference following the Great War.


Outraged at the terms laid out for an Allied peace in the Treaty of Versailles, which included the admission that Germany was solely responsible for the Great War, Brockdorff-Rantzau refused to sign the document and, as the nation has no choice but to agree, the role went to someone else.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Brockdorff-Rantzau was played by Jeroen Krabbe in "Paris, May 1919".
