World War I

By: Joon and Ambrose

Causes of WW I

Austeria-Hungary took over Serbia. The "spark" that started WW I is when a Serbian nationalist assasinated Franz Ferdinand. Also, France lost a war to Germany a couple years ago, so they don't like each other.

America's Role

America didn't want to be in WW1, but it all started when German U-boats torpedoed the Lusitania. America declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917. They had 4 million men, who were called doughboys!
