Propaganda during WWI encouraged a sense of nationalism and pride as well as urged men and women to join the fight both as nurses and soldiers. Some ads were used as sort of a political pun and others envoked a sense of hatred and horror towards other countries such as the poster above left featuring the gorilla holding an innocent young lady. The gorilla is wearing the prussian helment. This particular poster turned heads towards the fight against the Germans.


The progression of WWI introduced new methods of fighting including unrestricted submarie warfare and a variety of new weapons designed especially for government destruction. Trench warfare also became popular with the invetion and use of the machine gun. Along with the newly developed idea of trench warfare " No Man's Land" soon followed. In the mix of all the new styles of warfare was attrition, wearing down of your opponent.

Of course there were factors leading up to the war such as the introduction of militarism, alliances, imperialism, nationalism, the formation of the triple alliance, the formation of the triple entente, and the Assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinanad.

Right before the United States declared war important threatening events such as the Sinking of the Lustania and the reception of the Zimmerman Note were recognized. Before the United States joined the war over seas they started practicing themes of Isolationism and Neutrality and in that way the economy thrived.

Armistice was finally met. Peace was eventually restored among the nations through the treaties and agreements such as the Treaty of Versailles, the formation of the League of Nations, and the historical "Fourteen Points " speech given by President Woodrow Wilson. With some kinks and bumps in the road the signers of the Treaty of Versailles agreed that Germany must pay Reparation for the lives lost in the war. They are still paying it today.
