Synopsis:
Mostly what you probably know already except with much more detail.
But toward the end of the video, an overview of recent historians who think the treaty wasn't so bad after all.

The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

The treaty wasn’t in and of itself unreasonable. The problem was that Germans had been brainwashed enough by the kaisers propaganda that a slightly harsh treaty was seen as unforgivably harsh. And yet it wasn’t harsh enough to prevent Germany being dangerous.
