That that piece of nonsense had such devastating impact on the german people was a major reason why the Allies isisted on "Unconditional Surrender" with a occupation oif all Germany during World War 2.
The scars left by World War one lasted beyong the start of World War 2. One reason why Churchill ,behind the scenes, foot dragged so much on the Invasion of France was fear of the Western Front repeating itself. One British general, after hearing Ike criticising Churchill for trying to delay the invasion, told Ike he was up against the f the casualaties of Ypres and the Somme.
