1917-04-06
Milestone year: 1917
Description:
American President Wooldrew Wilson kept America neutral for 2.5 years. However, Germany started U-boat submarine attacks on all ships heading to England in 1917, essentially declaring war on United States. Germany also sought to collaborate with the Government of Mexico. After the war, United States was given the chance to handle middle-eastern affairs. Wooldrew Wilson sought to establish the League of Nations, but was vetoed by Congress after the war. National elites divided into three camps, the pacificists, the liberal internationalists, and Atlanticists, who sought to enter into security agreement with England. There was business consideration as well. Since the US was not able to sell arms to Germany, a major incentive to keep neutral is removed.
