Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's something economists don't like to discuss, but Hitler was actually the first leader of a major world power to put Keynesian economics into action, successfully.

Versailles was, without question, disastrous.  All parties failed.  Wilson was too obsessed with the League of Nations.  He was also not capable of competing, intellectually, with the European leaders.  It's a problem American politicians, with the possible exception of Clinton, seem to always have.  Lloyd George played two roles:  (1) of the man who didn't care, and (2) the politician, pandering to the public.

Full disclosure:  I'm not a big fan of Wilson, especially not as a person.  He was a racist pig and, even before the stroke, not at all bright, especially for someone from Princeton.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
