Most of Germany is on the east side of the Rhine River. A small part of Germany is west of the Rhine, and is called the Rhineland. The Rhineland is on the same side of the River as France, which was why the French wanted it "demilitarized" after WWI. If the Germans were forbidden by the Peace Treaty to have military units stationed in the Rhineland, it would be harder for Germany to invade France again.
