Re: The idea of partitioning Germany following World War I

I think you are failing to take into account three factors:
First, the interpretation of the principles behind Wilson's Fourteen Points leading to the readjustment of frontiers along "clearly recognizable lines of nationality" led to the movement to consolidate German-speaking Austria within a German Republic (prevented, of course by the Treaty of Saint-Germain of September 1919) - i.e., the tendency to consolidate (along national boundaries, rather than supra-national), rather than separate, that governed the peacemaker's decisions.

The idea of partitioning Germany following World War I

I'm writing about the various strands in the interwar period that led to World War II. One that is frequently remarked is the failure to restore any sort of structurally stable balance of power in Europe. It occurs to me that the only very plausible way to have done this would have been to break Germany into two stable halves, neither powerful enough to readily prevail over its neighbors.

I feel sure that I cannot be the first person to have thought of this, but I am not aware of my precursors. I wonder whether anyone can point me to some.
