the USA didn't want to enter the war as they thought it was a war to be fought by Europe and didn't want to be involved in it.But as they did in ww2 supplied Britan with food, ammunition and weapon's. a German submarine sank a large American vessel this entering them into ww1.
on the last days of ww1 the American general and commander of his forces did not want to end it with both armies agreeing terms he wanted to defeat them in the streets of Berlin effectively creating an unconditional surrender. he said that if we don't we will just have to fight another war like this and 20 years later World War 2
