Final Review Questions
Transcript of Final Review Questions
To what extent did Canada's involvement in the First World War contribute to Canadian nationalism?
Several Canadian Divisions and units, captured the German positions which the French and the British had failed to do. The news of this great Canadian victory, delighted Great Britain and France but absolutely thrilled Canadians.
The Battle of Vimy Ridge
Unlike their allies, Canada was ignited with a youthful spirit that got the job done. Showed the former colony was able to rescue the old world and would no longer be satisfied with colonial status on any front.
Coming of Age
Canada was given a seat during the Versailles Peace Conference and within a dozen years, the Act of Westminster was passed which handed over the control of Canadian policy to Canada.

Women in Canada
Canadian women finally got the vote in 1921, having contributed so much to the labor force during the war when so many men had been absent.
Many minority groups returned home to discriminatory conditions that would not be rectified for a long time. For example, Japanese-Canadians veterans of WWI, even though they had fought bravely for Canada, were not recognized as citizens of Canada until 1931.

"The US decision to enter the First World War on the side of the German Allies was mainly in response to unrestricted German Submarine warfare." To what extent do you agree with this statement?
Hugh Brogan's thoughts
Felt that Germany left Wilson no choice but to go into war. He argued that Wilson didn't have neutrality in mind and the USA would of gotten involved eventually. He said that the US entry into the war was dependent on Germany. Germany used unrestricted submarine warfare to defeat Britain and France before the US was ready. USA also aimed to become a wider influence and this war was a good opportunity to do so.
Niall Ferguson's thoughts
While sinking of RMS Lusitania and unrestricted submarine warfare were triggers, Wilson had something else in mind. He sought to construct an entirely new international order based on fairness and justice for all people.
The Moral Crusade
Some argued that Wilson's main reason for involvement was legalistic. Wilson's concept of neutrality rights followed established international law and asserted that USA should be free to trade and American citizens should be safe to sail in any ships. Wilson saw unrestricted submarine warfare as illegal in international law.
