episode 29: 183: Versailles Pt. 2 - Guests at the Party

The British would play a big role in the negotiations at Versailles, and they would be led by Lloyd George who would be one of the four individuals on the Supreme Council, which would make most of the larger decisions at the Conference. Another of those individuals was President Wilson, and he brought with him the concept of self-determination. This concept would drive many discussions, cause many argues, and create many problems.
