In a speech delivered to the US Congress on January 8, 1918, Wilson’s Fourteen Points laid out a series of diplomatic and territorial aims to conclude the war and ensure lasting peace once the Central Powers were defeated. Among these points was the establishment of an association of nations, the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France (see no. 10), and the effective break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
