This is a 32 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War I - The United States & WW I. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
World War I broke out in Europe in the summer of 1914. The war set Germany and Austria-Hungary (the Central Powers) against the United Kingdom, France, and Russia (the Allied Powers), and eventually involved many more nations.
The United States declared itself a neutral nation, but neutrality proved elusive. For three years, as Europeans faced war on an unprecedented scale, the neutrality so popular in the United States gradually slipped away. Germany and Britain each sought to terminate U.S. trade with the other. Exploiting its naval advantage, Britain gained the upper hand and almost ended U.S. trade with Germany.
When German submarines, known as U-boats, began to torpedo American merchant ships, American public opinion turned against Germany. Then on May 7, 1915, a German submarine attacked a British passenger liner, the Lusitania, killing more than a thousand people, including 128 Americans.
Washington condemned the attacks. In the presidential race of 1916, President Wilson won reelection on the campaign slogan, "He Kept Us Out of War," bit that was soon to change,
