It was France which gained a major part of Germany after the First World War. The German territory to the west of Rhine was to be occupied by the Allied troops for 15 years. Germany lost Alsace-Lorraine to France and Schleswig to Denmark. Coal mines in Saar, Germany, were given to France for 15 years. German lost her all overseas colonies to the victorious nations.
