In March 1918, representatives of Russian Communist party signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, ending the war that began between the German and Russian Empires in 1914. The German negiotiator was General Max Hoffman, General [[Paul von Hindenburg]]'s Chief of Staff. [[Leon Trotsky]] was appointed by Communist Party General Secretary [[Vladimir Lenin]] to represent the Soviet delegation. The Treaty was written in German and Russian; the French language, regarded as the "language of diplomacy", was not used. This was representative of the hegemonic struggle Germany regarded itself in with France at the time of [[World War I]].
Based upon Germany's ''Machtstellung'', or "position of power", the delegation that regarded itself as successors of the Tsarist [[Imperialism ]] gave up all legitimate claims to territory which included much of what is now Poland, Finland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Estonia and Latvia.
