The one that stands out to me the most is the rational decision made by Woodrow Wilson to enter the war. When the United States entered the war the tables had finally turned to benefit the Allied Powers. Before that time both the Allied and Central Powers were balanced and looking for new Allies to support them in winning the war. The Tables were finally turned favoring the Allied Powers including the British Empire, France, Italy, Russia, Serbia, Belgium, and the United States of America, while the Central Powers of Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire were defeated in 1918.
What did president Woodrow mean when he said peace without victory? Some people believe that his meaning of peace without a victory was there can be no peace with war. He is saying that as long as there is war then there can be no peace. What he is saying is that if there is a victory in a war that means there is also a loser.
The Nazi Party leaders during the war was Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany, Benito Mussolini of Italy, and Emperor Hirohito of Japan. The United State president at the time was Franklin D. Roosevelt. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt directed organization of Nation’s manpower and resources for global war. One reason
The significance that the Treaty of Versailles had on Germany was that, first off, Germany was blamed for starting the war by the other countries involved in World War I. France, Russia, and Italy all agreed that Germany was to blame for starting the war. Therefore, they made Germany pay reparations. These reparations affected Germany greatly. Not only did the Treaty of Versailles blame Germany for starting the war, but the Treaty of Versailles also led to a great depression and to the rise of Adolf Hitler.
In this speech, Patrick criticized the war and all the unfair acts done by the British. The British claimed they were done out of love, but the American Colonists felt that inequality had been leeching into the country. In Henry’s speech, he convinced Virginia that the acts they did to achieve peace were not working and war would still happen. The solution he saw was to fight and he named ways that they needed to fight. “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.
The royal Navy had 151 battleships and the German Navy 99. At the end of the battle, Britons lost more men and ships than Germans; however the Royal Navy was bigger than the Geramn navy so this battle had aminor effect on it. The Geramn Navy could not send battleships in the Atlantic easily to put Britain on its knees and destroy American battleships coming from the USA the following year, so this helped Allies to win the
What moves people more than guns? Ideas, being influenced. Strong influences came along creating pathways for the lingering war. Imperialism was still present in Europe in the decades preceding World War I. Colonies provided not only economic benefits, like raw materials and a foreign market, but were also a point of pride for nationalist people. It demonstrated the power and legacy of the country to everyone.
One cause of World War I was Militarism. Germany had an industrialized military and spent millions of dollars on weapons and trying to improve and prepare them for war. Many other countries seen this newfound competition and started to try and rebuild their armies and navy so they could keep up. France and Russia were also other big spenders in the war. With Germany’s new and improved army, they started to gain confidence and were convinced that they could win a war.
But what really lead to the World War I was the homicide of a Habsburg prince at Sarajevo in 1914. World War I was indeed an industrial war because automatic Machine Gun, tank, submarine, airplane, poison gas and mask where innovated. The automatic gun was more easy to use and faster because it had a higher fire rate making it possible for soldiers to move, fight, and defend. The tank was also another improvement used to defend troops and destroy enemy barricades. Submarines were a big advancement for Germany because they could destroy the ships of the Allies and this brought the U.S. to join the Allies.
“Interruption of the Ceremony” I chose a cartoon “Interrupting the Ceremony” by John T. McCutcheon. This cartoon was created when United States was involved in the World War I. Specifically it was created in 1920 when the war was resolved and President Woodrow Wilson came up with a peace treaty called “14 Points”. This cartoon was specifically intended for the everyday people of United States including all races, because it shows everyone that United States did not want to get involved in foreign affairs and possibly explaining to people why America chose to stay away from Europe’s entanglements. This cartoon was created after the World War I, which was the deadliest war at the time.
Germany started out with a lot of good leadership decisions in the beginning when it came to the submarine warfare. They learned from past mistakes in World War 1 and accepted the fact that following restrictions was better for the country in the political sense, and that in the long run would help the war as well. Through the sense of keeping the United States out of the war and keeping the amount of countries they had to fight down to two. Germany made many smart decisions when it came to its submarine warfare. With how Germany dealt the merchant ships and the neutral ships.
The Effect of Women on the Outcome of World War Two World War II effected women tremendously by taking them out of their comfort zones and chucking them into the work force and pushing them to do most of the work men normally would have been doing. The war also effected women by providing opportunities for them to serve in non-traditional roles; in fact, some of them enlisted into the military to serve the United States. The way the war effected women is that they had to take care of family in addition to performing work normally done by men. It was difficult to find people to watch after kids which made life during this time very difficult. After the end of World War II society in general was effected considering the baby boom.
In my opinion I think that the United States joining the war on the side of England, France, and Russia in April 1917 was a bad idea. I think this for three main reasons. My first reason is because nobody but President Wilson has a say in the war. My second reason is who gets the money and benefits from the entire war. Finally, my last and final reason is because overall we weren’t really ready for the war and we kind of brought it upon ourselves.
