At first the alliances were made to protect each other and not to attack unless being attacked. By 1910, many alliances changed their way. The Austro-German alliance became aggressive after the Bosnian crisis, the Germans promised to help the Austria-Hungary alliance if Austria invaded Serbia.

Woodrow Wilson also talked about his famous myth of being described as the world’s most overburdened person saying, “It is true that being the President of the United States is not easy and you have to carry the load of not only the U.S. but every country in the world and also your day is full and you have to work every minute.

And by doing so, you “insure your home against Hitler”. Hitler at that time was expecting to win the war by spreading fear and terror all over the world, and this is why he looks disturbed and angry when he sees the US army being strengthened. The Nazi sign on his hat is represented in a big dimension to emphasize the terror he was spreading. American citizens, by buying war saving bonds and stamps, are supporting their army against the German army in order not to loose their power and leadership, and thus, they are protecting themselves (their houses) against the Germans. If we analyse further, we can tell that the main colour around Hitler’s face is black, which is a symbol of negativity, death and mourn, whereas the background of the two sentences are white, meaning that if you follow the instructions you will find peace.

The IRA and the Irish volunteers had decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to start their rebellion.
Germany attempted to break Britain’s blockade, which resulted in the Battle of Jutland, in 1916.

The role of naval Warfare during World War I, especially the Allied blockade of Germany, proved to be crucial in defeating the Central Powers, which consisted of Austria-Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire.
During that time 116,000 were killed and 204,000 were wounded. In 1919, The Treaty of Versailles officially ended World War I. The treaty required that Germany accept full responsibility for causing the war, make war reparations to some allied countries, surrender some of its territory to surrounding countries, surrender African colonies and limit the size of its military.
The War of 1812 The War of 1812 is also known as the “second war of independence”. The United States fought against Great Britain from 1812 to 1815. When the United State went to war with Great Britain, they were already in war with France and the United States had many defeats that cost much that laid in the hands of the British. Overlooking the war, the United States had won when each country signed the Treaty of Ghent, which was an agreement contract.
When President Wilson requested that Congress declare war on Germany, America was not ready to mobilize our troops for war. The United States had just begun to pull itself out of recession and were not ready for a war economically. Some Americans wanted to see the fall of Germany, but did not support sending our soldiers across the ocean. Despite all this, Wilson continued to push for American contribution in the war effort. Eventually, Wilson’s tactics won over and we were able to send large amounts of reinforcements into the war.
