Part 4: Russia Out, America In, and the End of the War
Why did Russia leave the war? Massive Casualties- 6,700,000 dead or seriously wounded. Millions of dollars spent on the war. No serious victories and many serious defeats. Intense social unrest leading to social revolution. The end of Czarist Russia and the start of the Communist takeover that favored the people over the war. Russian Soldiers running from the German army
Treaty of Brest- Litovsk Signed between the new Bolshevik Government in Russia and the Central Powers (Germany, Austria Hungary and Turkey) Gave away a third of Russia's population Gave away half of Russias already small industry Gave away 9/10th of Russias coal mines Russia gave Germany the territories of Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, and the Ukraine. Russia gave Turkey the territories of Ardahan, Kars, and Batumi. Russia had to pay six billion marks (German $) in war reparations to Germany.
What did Russia hope to gain by leaving WWI early? Name at least 3. What consequences would Russia have for leaving the war early? Name at least 3.
By 1917… Russia has fallen out of the war and into the Russian Revolution Germany and their allies the Turks have succeeded in winning the Eastern Front. Italy is about to fold under Austrian aggression. All armies are made up of young boys and weary veterans. Everyone is low on food and ammunition. Germany believes they will win. Everyone else believes Germany will win too.
But Why Now After 3 Years of Neutrality? Unrestricted Submarine Warfare- German U-boats sink American merchant ships and the occasional passenger liner. America loses money and a few citizens The Zimmerman Telegram- Germany encourages Mexico to attack America and keep the US out of Europe.
Read the Zimmerman Telegram and Do APPARTS on page 68A in your notebook. Your Focus Question for Significance is: Why would this document lead the USA into finally declaring war in 1917? Share Out…

The Yanks Are Coming! Woodrow Wilson, US President, April 2, 1917 "The world must be made safe for democracy." Colonial Charles Stanton Lafayette, Nous sommes ici!
What effect will the Americans have on the war? What advantages do they bring to the allies? What disadvantages do they bring?
Americans in the Trenches Infantry, Artillery, Aviation - all that we have - are yours to dispose of as you will. I have come to say to you that the American people would be proud to be engaged in the greatest battle in history. Gen. Pershing
WWI is a Total War All the energy and work of every person in the country is directed to war. Factories are transformed from making cars and radios to making tanks and artillery shells. Commercial ship yards stop making trade ships and start making war ships. Women enter the work force to take the places left my men fighting at the front. Children collect scrap metal, paper, grease and other items to provide the mass of raw materials needed for the war. Everyone goes on rationing. Food, gas, rubber and cloth are all regulated and restricted so that enough of all those things gets to the soldiers. Every member of society participates in the war in some way.
Desertions and Strikes April - June, 1917 Over half a million French soldiers mutiny, or "go on strike" and refuse to continue the failed offensive. July, 1918 German troops being shipped from the Eastern to Western Front begin to desert in large numbers from their transport trains. October 28, 1918 German sailors mutiny at port when asked to sail and fight a hopeless naval battle.
Tanks break the German line in the Western Front At last, with American manufacturing, more advanced tanks, more personnel and supplies, the Allies finally start to take ground. Allies develop depth charges and break the stranglehold of the German U-boats. Supply ships can move once again.
