WWI Trench Warfare: “Over the Top” Germany attacked France by marching through Belgium. Great Britain declared war on Germany for going through Belgium. France and Great Britain stop Germany’s advance outside Paris at the Marne River. Both sides dig in and fight trench warfare style. The Russians stop the German advance in Poland. Both sides revert to trench warfare. Britain and the allies attack the Ottoman Empire to maintain control of the Suez Canal and open the Dardanelles to the Russians.
The U.S. in WW1 The U.S. initially decided to stay neutral and that the war was strictly a European affair. However, the U.S. sold food, raw materials, and weapons to both sides. Eventually the U.S. primarily traded with the Allies. Trade w/… Britain and FranceGermany 1914: $754 M1914: $345 M 1915: $1.28 B1915: $29 M 1916: $2.75 B1916: $2 M WHAT HAPPENED?
The U.S. in WW1 The U.S. was shipping war supplies to the Triple Entente on American passenger ships. In 1917 the U.S. intercepted the Zimmermann telegram arraigning an alliance between Germany and Mexico. Germany would help Mexico reacquire Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas if they would fight on Germany’s side. Also, Germany sunk with their U-Boats many American ships on the ocean (Lusitania). Is the U.S. really neutral? The U.S. declares war on Germany on April 6, 1917.
