On June 26, 1917, the first US troops arrived in France during World War I. Unfortunately, the soldiers arrived untrained, and lacking in both equipment and readiness to begin to fight on the western front.

Did Joseph Stalin want the US to enter World War 2?

Cautious and always suspicious, but yes. Stalin had already been receiving US Aircraft (especially the P-39 Aerocobra), warships, rifles, ammunition, food, and medical supplies from the US. Stalin would most likely have wanted them to for the reason that if the Western Front were to be strengthened, Germany would have to strengthen their forces against them. This would require pulling troops off the Eastern Front and therefore from his. If the Western Front were to lose or collapse altogether, troops and equipment would be flooded to the Eastern Front. With the abundance of new numbers, Stalin's forces wouldn't have stood a chance.

What was most important for the brake of the stalemate on the western front The spring offensive The introduction of new technology The blockade or the US entry?

i would say the US entry into the war was the most important factor in ending the stalemate on the Western Front in WW1. This is because they brought thousands of troops with them and extra machinery and supplies. If the US did not intervene it would have been much harder for England to win the war and would have taken much, much longer. hope this helps... :)

Why were people fighting on the western front?

There was a large area of land that the British soldiers tried to take from the German soldiers. No one could advance on either side, the soldiers and their commanders got tired of even trying. A newspaper reported named this the Western Front. The US troops, among others, were sent in to break this stalemate, and to move against the Germans. This they did, thanks to General Pershing, by ignoring the stalled British Army, and going around the Western Front with all its trenches.

What impact did the US had when it entered in 1917?

Although US ground & air units would not reach France in numbers until mid-1918, the US entry into the "Great War" in April 1917 caused the German army leadership to accelerate it's plans to defeat Russia & then the French & British before US forces could arrive. This would cause a drain of German resources, yet the Russians would be defeated, in major part due to the collapse of the Czar's government. On the western front, German offensive action was more costly than the earlier defensive posture. At sea the Allies enjoyed superiority, and now with the US in the war, were more able to move supplies from the US to Europe, and from England to France. The U-boat threat remained, but it was diminished more and more after the US entry. In 1918 as US troops began arriving, overall morale among the allied troops was raised, and US troops were used to stop German advances. For Germany, following the defeat of Russia, there was a race on to get their troops from the Russian front to the western front before the American could concentrate forces in France. The Germans eventually lost this race. As the size of American forces grew, they were able to undertake offensive action. The Germans signed the Armistice in November 1918 before the full weight of American forces could be felt, and before a complete military defeat would be apparent.

What made the allies win on the western front?

The Allies won on the Western Front, because Germany was fighting a war on two fronts, which is very difficult to win. The Us>s joining the war also helped.
