This is what towns in Europe and Germany could have looked like before the war started.
Was it really this perfect, and peaceful looking? Wow! I can't see how anything could have gone wrong at this point.
The U.S. sent ships to Great Britain, similar to this one, that carried supplies to help with the war they were in against Germany. As you already know, the US hadn't involved themselves with this ugly war.
... Until the Germans started sinking our ships that looked similar to this one after they had already ignored our generous warnings.
Brrrr! Yes, it was. And in fact, many soldiers got what is known to us today as soldier's foot.
Was it always this rainy and dreary?
These are some of the actual trenches that have been preserved since the war as a reminder of the hardships all the soldiers went through to fight for rights.
Trenches were good for protection and hideouts that gave good home bases to shoot from.
In the end, (as a cause of the war) many millions of soldiers were hurt and more were wounded leaving many families in depression and sadness.
That is very sad. I can't imagine what it would be like to live with hurt in your heart forever.
The end of the war was the cause of a treaty being signed that stated many regulations the Germans must follow to gain our friendship once again.
As we helped write this treaty, other countries that were involved in the war also helped too. This united us but helped establish peace.
The name of this treaty ended up being called/named the Treaty of Versailles. This was because it was actually signed near Paris in a Versailles palace.
The Treaty of Versailles was signed
Hungary-Austria was split into two countries (Australia, and Hungary) and Finland Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania was also separated becoming their own nation (independent), as Balkan states were combined to create Yugoslavia.
This scene that looks like an island that was split, shows us and reminds us of how many countries were split as a cause of the war.
