Turns out, World War I wasn’t really good for anything except messing up things. Anyway, last week marked the 100th anniversary of the deceleration of war on the Empire of Germany. The exact date was April 04, 1917. In real terms, there were lots of Americans in the war in one way or another, but now, the full military might of the United States of America was in it to win it.
Up until this point, America wasn’t really seen as the mighty super power it was. The main benefit of America’s joining was the influx of new troops to the front lines. Slowly, over the course of the war, and the years that followed, America transformed itself into the global power that it would soon be famous for.
