Interesting that WWI changed the rest of the world much more than it did America. The USA was changed much more by WWII. By the end of WWI, the monarchies that had ruled Europe and thus most of the world for many centuries had largely disappeared. The seeds were laid for the dissolution of the great imperial empires of Britain and France although it would take another half century to complete the process. The USA changed very little however. WWII was different for the USA. By the end of the war, Americans had become much more involved in world affairs and so continue to this day. The mass involvement by women and blacks in the military/industrial effort laid the groundwork for the civil rights movements of the 60's and 70's. Thus the war put the USA into a definite world leadership position politically and militarily for the first time in history.

World War II had a big affect on minority groups in America. Specifically, President Roosevelt had all the people of Japanese ethnicity put into internment camps. They were essentially held prisoner until the war was over.

World War II affected African-Americans in many ways. Instead of being seen as an inferior race, they fought alongside the Caucasians in the war for America.

Yes they did, America was paired up with the allies, which included France, Britain and America. America joined WW1 because of Germany using banned submarine warfare and sending a telegram to Mexico saying if they opposed America they would get lost land back. (New Mexico, Texas, Arizona). That telegram however, was intercepted by Britain and shown to America. When America joined, Russia dropped out. However, America brought the recourses necessary to give the Allies an advantage over the Central powers, allowing them to defeat them.

president Roosevelt wanted America to stay out of the war, but on December 7th , 1941 when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor he had no choice but to go to war. While America was in the war Roosevelt made every effort to help America win. By, Husky Pratt
