Stalemate By September 1914, the war had reached a stalemate, neither side was able to gain an advantage.When a French and British force stopped a German advance near Paris, both sides holed up in trenches separated by an empty “no man’s land.” Small gains in land resulted in huge numbers of human casualties.Both sides continued to add new allies, hoping to gain an advantage.
76 STALEMATE AND WARFARE Modern Warfare Neither soldiers nor officers were prepared for the new, highly efficient killing machines used in WW I.Machine guns, hand grenades, artillery shells, and poison gas killed thousands of soldiers who left their trenches to attack the enemy.As morale fell, the lines between soldiers and civilians began to blur.

79 CONFLICTING SYMPATHIES WILSON'S NEUTRALITYThe effect of the war upon the United States will depend upon what American citizens say and do. Every man who really loves America will act and speak in the true spirit of neutrality, which is the spirit of impartiality and fairness and friendliness to all concerned.The people of the United States are drawn from many nations, and chiefly from the nations now at war. It is natural and inevitable that there should be the utmost variety of sympathy. Some will wish one nation, others another, to succeed in the momentous struggle.I venture, therefore, my fellow countrymen, the United States must be neutral in fact, as well as in name, during these days that are to try men's souls.CONFLICTING SYMPATHIESwilson neutrality1
