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. After the war it brought on a lot of changes all over the world, such as women gaining the right to vote, and the Treaty of Versailles was signed, which declared Germany responsible for starting the war and ordered them to pay reparations.
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. With a winner and a loser then only one of the countries will have peace.
After a long, four years of disastrous war, and over 20 million deaths, the ending of the war left countries in a state of desperation. The resources and economic costs gone into war, in addition to land destruction and deaths impacted many powerful
The way that the United states won the war was because our military is strong, we had good allies, and great leaders in office and on the battlefield. 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. The Treaty of Versailles had a huge effect on Germany.
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.
Room 40 understood the coded message which mentioned this battle so the UK deployed its forces in time and and Germany lost the surprise effect. 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.
Aside from that they felt proud because they had a strong army after the Franco-Prussian War, they felt invincible. 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.
