Source: Chronology of the War according to Great Britain.
World War I (WWI or WW1), also known as the First World War, the Great War, or the War to End All Wars, and was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918.
More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized in one of the largest wars in history.
Over nine million combatants and seven million civilians died as a result of the war (including the victims of a number of genocides), a casualty rate exacerbated by the belligerents’ technological and industrial sophistication, and the tactical stalemate caused by grueling trench warfare.
It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, and paved the way for temporary and superficial political changes.
Like is the nature of the Black hand of white supremacy they managed to cause and stir uprisings, protests. violence and revolutions in many of the nations involved.
Having lost white supremacy provocations continued and took to form of unresolved rivalries which were still extant at the end of the conflict then contributed to the start of the Second World War only twenty-one years later fueling the fires that created Germany’s Nazi Party a Neo-White supremacists movement of the day which Deposed the Kaiser’s Imperial White Supremacy,
After heavy fighting the Allies nearly exhausted having fought bravely for 3 years in 1917 the United States declared war on Germany on April 6 breaking their policy of neutrality and leaving a bitter Taste in the mouths of Central Powers.
The United States proclaimed a policy of neutrality in 1914 at the wars start and this despite president Woodrow Wilson’s antipathies against Germany.
When the German U-boat U-20 sank the British liner Lusitania on 7 May 1915 with 128 US citizens aboard, Wilson said “America is too proud to fight” and demanded the Germans and the central powers to end their an attacks on passenger ships. Apparently more ships than just the Lusitania had been sunk and many were deemed disasters at sea and the fault of poor navigation e.g. the unsinkable RMS Titanic to name only one.
As Germany complied their maritime trophies and Wilson repeatedly warned that the US would not tolerate unrestricted submarine warfare in violation of international law and of human rights.
Wilson came under pressure from war hawks led by former president and war Hero Theodore Roosevelt, who denounced German acts as “piracy,”
Public opinion reacted with outrage to suspected German sabotage of Black Tom in Jersey City, New Jersey on 30 July 1916, and to the Kingsland explosion on 11 January 1917 in present-day Lyndhurst, New Jersey.
The Black Tom mission was an act of sabotage by German agents to destroy American-made munitions
During World War I, te U.S. was an independent power and did not officially join the Allies. It closely cooperated with the Allies militarily but acted alone in diplomacy.
The U.S. made its major contributions in terms of supplies, raw material and money, starting in 1917.
American soldiers under General John Pershing, Commander-in-Chief (C-in-C) of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF), arrived in large numbers on the Western Front in the summer of 1918.
During the war the U.S. mobilized over 4 million military personnel and suffered 110,000 deaths, including 43,000 due to the influenza pandemic Bio-Terrorism for which they were not prepared for or properly immunized.
During and after the war, the US saw a dramatic need to increase in the size of the U.S. Armed Forces.
After a relatively slow start in mobilizing the economy and labor force, by spring 1918, the nation was poised to play a role in the conflict. The entry of the United States met an exhausted central powers group give up only temporarily to save as many of munitions, money, territories and military resources as possible. From its day of surrender the Military General Left began planning and preparing for the second world war.
Between World War I and the Started of World War II. White Supremacy Communism spread to China started a revolution weakening her significantly. Chinas communist allies did little to come to her rescue and its was Americans who fighting the war against Japan in the Pacific helped more to Liberate China where many British & Scottish Missionaries worked with the devout in China to bring the light of the Holy Spirit to her soil and many died in Japanese concentration and prison camps before they were liberated.
