Summary note:
Jan Smuts was one of the key figures behind the creation of the League of Nations; Woodrow Wilson was inspired by his ideas, including the mandates scheme. Smuts pleaded for a magnanimous peace, warning that the treaty of Versailles would lead to another war. Declaring "I return to South Africa a defeated man," Smuts encouraged John Maynard Keynes to write The Economic Consequences of the Peace . Smuts denounced the occupation of the Ruhr in 1923, became prime minister of South Africa, and made important contributions to the British cause in World War II.
