America and the Great War Name: Institution: America and the Great War Introduction The Great War was a worldwide war that started in Europe. It began in July 1914 and ended in November 1918. It involved more than 70 million soldiers drawn from different countries and colonies across the globe. America decided to remain neutral in the war for about two years but eventually got into the war after Germany decided to sink a British vessel that was ferrying approximately 128 Americans. The involvement of the US in the war saw the Central Powers defeated and a peace treaty (Versailles Treaty) negotiated for future peace among nations.

Many Europeans, before the great war, believed in the military, economic, and cultural supremacy of their countries. Their attitudes were fueled by thing like fanatically patriotic reporting. Several newspaper pages of this period were full of nationalist rhetoric as well as inflammatory rumors about the enemy nations. Politicians, diplomats, and Royals did not do much to deflate the pressure that was caused by nationalism, they in fact added to it by making provocative statements. Nationalism made both governments and citizens excessively confident on their government and the strength of their military
