If Great Britain had realized that its Entente Cordial with France was interpreted as unequivocal support in a conflict with Germany, Britain might have worked far harder than it did to stop the conflict from brewing. France got her revenge for her earlier humiliation. Alsace and Lorraine were recovered in 1919. In exchange, Communism was unleashed in Russia and Fascism in Germany.
