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.
