Why were they fighting
World War I started with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28, 1914. Every country has an ally so when one country fights another country helps, But the U.S. wanted to be neutral in the war. On April 6, 1917, Germany sunk an American boat. Which made the U.S. join the war with its allies.
Who Was Fighting
In World War I it was the Allied Powers VS the Central Powers. The Allied Powers included United States, Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Belguim, and Serbia. The Central Powers Included Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire, and Bulgaria.
The Allied Powers won WWI by making the Central Powers sign the Treaty of Versailles. After World War 1 left Germany in debt which leads them to be bankrupt because they had to pay for all of the damage in Europe. After WWI, it was a great day for the women in the U.S. the government passed the 19th Amendment which allowed women to vote. Also, the economy was booming the production rate in the United States was sky high including the stocks. This leads to another subject.
