Armistice negotiations begin

December 7th, 2016

The German peace delegation arrives at a railway siding in Compiegne Forest to negotiate the terms for an armistice. The Allies are in no mood to negotiate. Allied Supreme Commander, Ferdinand Foch, is there to dictate the terms to the Germans. The situation in Germany is desperate, the country faces domestic as well as military collapse and the Navy has twice mutinied. There is little choice but to accept the Allied terms.
