although the US was officiallly neutral as stated by the then current president Woodrow Wilson JP Morgan had given the allies (France and England )over 2.1 bilion dollars to support the war. then when Germany sunk the british ship lusitania the US officially joined the war against Germany.

Technically we were 'neutral' for the most part because of the Monroe Doctrine and not wanting to get involved in foreign affairs by practicing isolationism, but we did lend tons of money to Britain and France, and our trade with those countries boomed while trade with Germany lessened.

The United States entered World War I, for the sole purpose for the defeat of Germany. Germany had ignored the United States' neutral stance, attacking its ships and citizens and finally, trying to persuade Mexico to attack the United States. Germany went down to defeat, therefore, the war aims of the United States were met.

The United States was the nation that emerged from World War 1 as the greatest world power. By remaining neutral for most of the war and the land-lease act the United States was able to leave the war with more power than before.

The United States tried to stay neutral when the war broke out in 1914. Both sides tried very hard to get them to join the war. After much propaganda and rumors of poisonings, kidnappings and sabotage the United States finally joined in the war.
