This event horrified the world because people viewed it as Germany trampling the rights of a small neutral country. Invaolation of the international law. This made people bielive that Germany was the aggresor in the war.
1st Battle of the marnes
The first battle of the marnes was between September 6th to the 12th in 1914. Brought an end to the war movement that dominated WWI. Was a battle between France + Britan against Germany. The german army began to retreat on the 9th the Allies persuded the germans after there retreat.
Sinking of the Lusitania
The Lusitania was a british ship that commonly travled between America and Britian. On the day it sunk it had 159 americans on board. German u-boats or subbmairnes would survey the waters and wait to sink ships so war material wouldnt get from one place to another. 128 us civillians died, america was outraged!
Battle of Jutland
Some people say that this battle is the ONLY major naval battle of WWI. Britian and Germany fought in this battle, and germany was not a powerful naval force anymore after this. even though britain lost alot they were still more powerful.
Usa enters into World War One
When WWI broke out in 1914 the US remained neutral. Both sides the allies and the central poweres tried to get America to join in the war. The US viewed germany as bad, and a monarchy. And because the german u-boats sunk US ships it helped us make the decion to enter WWI. The Zimmerman note and cutting off realations with america, were some of the other reasons that we enterd the war.
The Treaty of Versailles was the peace settlement signed after World War One had ended in 1918.The treaty was signed at the vast Versailles Palace near Paris.The three most important politicians there were David Lloyd George, Georges Clemenceau and Woodrow Wilson.
