Most would say that we were on an immediate path to war the day following Pearl harbor, Dec 7, 1941

AnswerThe United States was involved in WWII almost immediately providing funds and exquipment to the Allied forces. But we did not actively join in the fighting til after Dec 7, 1941. The attack on Pearl was the one thing no one had taken into account. We no longer were separate from the war. At that point we then joined in the fighting. when Americans got involved in WW2In World War 2, Americans got involved right after the Japanese attacked pearl harbor. AnswerPearl Harbor.

cant say fully of the top of my head but the US joined the war after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, but only declared war on the Japanese. later they declared on the other Axis forces.

Germany had been sinking US merchant ships and other ships. When they sunk the British ship The Lusitania killing 1200 people traveling to New York (including Americans) Alfred Vanderbilt was on that ship when it went down. He bravely gave up his life preserver for a woman with a baby. He and his valet did not survive. The Americans were incensed. President Wilson and the Congress chose to declare war on Germany. The Germans regarded their action as being justified saying the ship had war ammunition on board and also claimed there were guns on the decks. They did not care if there were families aboard and not military people.
