Product Description
This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentations on Isolation Policy of the United States prior to World War I. All three presentations together number 70 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Power point #1 is entitled, World War I - Mobilizing for War - United States & Public Opinion and contains 13 slides and covers the following:

President Wilson upon the outbreak of World War I declared the United States neutral in 1914. His policy of neutrality was enormously popular with the American people. It probably was the deciding factor in his re-election in 1915. It was especially popular with German and Irish Americans. The Irish were strong Democratic supporters. The Germans were a major constituency in the Midwest which often determined the outcome of American elections.

Once the war began to drag on many Americans began having second thoughts about the War, even before it ended in November 1918. The principal reasons were the casualties the American Expeditionary Force experienced in France.

American war losses were small by European standards. But this was only because America entered the War several years after the other combatants and the AEF was only committed for about 6 months of battle. During those 6 months, American casualties were as high as experienced by other combatant countries, especially because the AEF was engaged in largely pitched offensive operations.

Power point #2 is entitled, World War I - Mobilizing for War - United States Prepares for War and contains 23 slides and covers the following:

The United States for 3 years reveled in its moral superiority, staying out of the European war. Most Americans wanted no part of the War, a sentiment that was particularly strong in the heavily German populated Mid-West and especially the progressives, who made any Administration efforts to strengthen the military difficult. The United States pursued a friendlier relationship with Great Britain and France than with Germany or Austria-Hungary, but Wilson’s administration maintained a strictly neutral stance.

The reckless German policy of implementing unrestricted submarine warfare managed to bring the United States into the War, arguably the greatest miscalculation in German history.

Due to the high number of casualties the American Expeditionary Force experienced in France, many Americans began having second thoughts about the War, even before it ended in 1918. American forces were only committed for about 6 months of battle, but American casualties were as high as experienced by other combatant countries, especially because the American Expeditionary Force was engaged in largely pitched offensive operations.

Mercifully the War ended on November 11, 1918.

Power point #3 is entitled, Mobilizing for War - Steps Leading to U. S. Involvement and contains 34 slides and covers the following:

United States President Woodrow Wilson campaigned for re-election in 1916 with the slogan "He kept us out of war". United States at various points tried to negotiate an end to the War. Wilson in a 1917 speech called for a "peace without victory". The President launched diplomatic initiatives aimed at ending the War that suggested generous terms to the Germans. The Kaiser and his Government, were, basically dismissive and intent on a military victory. The British were still hopeful that America would join the Allies.

Following the Declaration of War an explosion of patriotic fervor not seen in the United States since the Civil War erupted. There were patriotic celebrations and parades of various organizations, many whom sold war bonds to raise money. Large numbers of young men enlisted as many cities came close to fulfilling their quota within a few months, well before Selective Service went into effect (June 5). Along with the patriotic fervor, a wave of anti-German hysteria spread over America with the Declaration of War on Germany.

The United States would have to recruit, train, and equip its army and this would take some time. The Germans knew this and gambled that the U-boat campaign and their massive Spring 1918 offensive would win the War before the Americans could intervene in force. Significant numbers of American soldiers did not begin to arrive in France until the summer of 1918. At that time about 10,000 Americans arrived daily, unimpeded by the U-boats, amassing a huge army, to battle the German soldiers on the Western Front.
