In 1915 the British cruise ship Lusitania was sunk by a GermanU-boat, killing 128 Americans. The next year two munitionsfactories were destroyed, which was blamed on German sa…boteurs. In1917 the Zimmermann Telegram was released to the public. It was aGerman message to Mexico urging Mexico to invade the US. Theseevents together shifted US public opinion in support of war withGermany.

I think the German perspective was to counter Russian aggression, in support of Serbia, against their neighbour Austria/Hungary. Potentially the Russians represented a huge ar…med force and were allied to France, & by association, to Britain. The British have the most powerful Navy in History, but the Germans have built many modern ships to counter this in the recent arms race..... The Germans have, as they see it, the advantage of interior lines, they are in the middle & able to move resources from front to front as they wish. It soon becomes plain that Germany is very much the domnant partner in the Central Powers: Austria/Hungary & Turkey are bit players at best, in times they are sidelined by the actions on the western front. Despite Brusilovs' action against Austria/Hungary, Russia is soon on the back foot in a major way & Rumania enters the war to great cost. In the end of it all both the German Navy & Army were undefeated, as they saw it, the Allies really were nowhere nearer to Berlin than in 1914. But, considering the cost in Human life, and the misery and devastation of it all, who had really gained anything ?
In spite of the fact that many Americans wanted the country toremain neutral, the United States entered World War I on April 6,1917. World War I ended on November 11, 1918.
The sinking of the ocean liner RMS Lusitania on May 7, 1915 is considered one of the primary reasons for US entry into the war. Another was the so-called Zimmerman telegram ,… in which Germany sought to involve Mexico in a coordinated war against the US. The US did not enter World War I until April 6, 1917, 23 months after the Lusitania, but shortly after Germany announced it was re-instituting unrestricted submarine warfare.

The Zimmerman Telegram was a telegram from Germany asking Mexico to attack the United States. The British intercepted it and sent it to the Americans. Also, unrestricted U-…Boat warfare had been reinstated recently and American ships were being sunk again. --- i thought it was the assassination of ferdinand? Answer: The assassination of Archduke Ferdinand provoked Austria-Hungary to declare war on Serbia, which dragged the rest of Europe into World War I. The assassination, however, was of no grand concern of the average United States citizen.
