The United States for 3 years reveled in its moral superiority, staying out of the European war. The vast majority of 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 more friendly 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.
