No. The Emperors 's Army was in a state of ruin.
Further defense was hopeless and no longer feasible.
The German peace negotiator was ordered from home
to accept ANY terms
and his orders were sent in the clear, not coded.
The Armistice gave rise to the problem that many Germans did NOT know
of the military collapse. Thay believed, in error, that their army was strong.
During the last few weeks of the war, Hitler was out of action,
in the hospital, having been blinded by a gas attack.
When he recovered and was released to behold the Armistice,
then, in common with many Germans, he wondered something
along the lines of: "what the hell happened?!"
As we all know, he rose to political power by alleging
that his brave and viable army was stabbed in the back,
politically, and he pointed at available scapegoats to take the blame.
If we had pressed the fight, accepting General Pershing 's wisdom,
then it woud have been clear to all Germans in the time of World War I
that thay had been fully militarily beaten, the same way that the Germans
in the time of World War II knew that thay had been beaten, fair n square
, no treachery.
That woud have obviated
the Second World War.
In turn, that woud have obviated the Third World War,
which made me very, very nervous for a long, long time until Christmas of 1991.
