im to lazy to use the "quote buttons" cuz my 'nets going slow so bear with me : devil wasp what the hell r u talking about:
""actually you know nothing about that. hell the germans did do an advance and couldnt take it they didnt have the troops hell your troops didnt get
thier untill 1918 ! your forces done feck all in that war. all you did was give supplies thats all! ""
thats the most bs ive ever read, heres the truth: ""When America entered the Great War in April 1917, it had a small constabulary Army with
no experience in industrial age warfare. It was spread from the east coast across the nation and the Pacific to the Philippines. Nineteen months later
the United States had a 2 million man force concentrated in France. Flanders and Italy. Towards the war's end the American Expeditionary Force or
AEF, as it came to be known, was occupying more of the Western Front than Britain and all her Commonwealth Nations combined, lending combat divisions
to all the allies and leading offensive operations against the best defended sector still occupied by the Germans. The AEF could claim when the
Armistice came to have never failed on the defensive to turn back the enemy nor failed on the attack to achieve its aims.""
""Without General Pershing's forces on the Western Front, Germany would have won the World War! By New Year's Day 1918, the
British Army had been bled before Passchendaele, the French Army had suffered both defeat and mutiny from the Nivelle Offensive and Russia, then under
Lenin, had withdrawn from the war. With its victory on the Eastern Front, the German Army had available over a million additional men to transfer to
The key to Allied victory was Morale. It was the intense and undiminished morale of the US military combined with a staunch domestic backing which
convinced the German they could no longer continue. When their morale collapsed on all fronts they sued for peace. The AEF with its operations broke
the German morale.""
""As Winston Churchill pointed out, with their reinforcements from the East they could have sat on their occupied sections of France and Flanders
and dared the Entente to attack. Would Petain have ordered his enervated Poilus back on the offensive? Would Lloyd George have provided Douglas Haig
the manpower to attempt a new variation on his 1917 campaign in the Ypres Salient? Without the presence of the AEF to provide the decisive margin it
would have been most unlikely.""
worldwarI.com i believe...
no u r an idiot. hell the combined might of french and british forces would of atleast held off russia. hell we aint defenselss ,we ruled the
sky's!"" pertaining to ww2, now look, so u ruled the skys, u would have never reached germany- and what french forces are u talking about? the
