When America Entered World War I

World War I was started in 1914 and in that period, the president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, decided to pledge neutrality. Moreover, most of the Americans supported the position of their president. They didn’t want to take part in the war that wasn’t related to them. However, within a few years the situation changed the same as people’s attitude towards it.

In this period of time, America had very close trading relations with Britain. It meant they America’s ships were sailing Britain very often. The situation between Britain and Germany was very tense and it influenced on the relations between the United States and Germany. Because of the quarantine of the British Islands, there were a few ships that were traveling to them and struck German mines. Some of them sank, when other were damaged. The situation became worse, when Germany announced that it would provide unrestricted warfare against every ship in the war zone around Britain, whether it is neutral or not. One month later, a German cruiser sinks a private American vessel, the William P. Frye. President of the United States was furious, but the German government brought their apologies and claimed that this attack was bad mistake. Germany understood that America’s involvement would worse their positions.

Starting from May, there were several times, when Germany sank a few ships with passengers. On May 7, they torpedoed the liner called “Lusitania” without any warning. There were 1, 959 people on this ship and 1,198 were killed. Among them, there were 128 Americans. Germany found themselves an excuse – they stated that this liner was carrying munitions. America demanded to stop attacks on unarmed merchant and passenger ships. The next attack was in August, but this time Germany thought about the safety of people, before to destroy the ship. Yet, in November, it sank an Italian liner without any warning. There were 272 passengers, including 27 Americans on this ship. These attacks changed public attitude towards the involvement in this war.

In the beginning of 1917, America broke all diplomatic relations with Germany. A few hours after this, German U-boat sank Housatonic, the American liner. America started to prepare for war. At the end of March, Germany sank another four American merchant ships. That is why, on April 2, Woodrow Wilson asked called Congress for a declaration of war. After four days, it was decided to enter World War I.
