The U.S. Navy had an intelligence and counter-espionage service presence, along with liaison offices to deal with French authorities for marine matters.    Following conferences between the Allied and Central Power Forces in late 1918 and early 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed at Paris, France, on June 28, 1919, formally concluding the war between Germany and the Allies.
