Ferdinand and his wife.
What new technologies were used in warfare in World War I?
Answer the following questions in your notes:
1. What were the two names of the sides during WW1?
2. What were the four MAIN causes of WW1?
- is defending a position by fighting from the protection of deep ditches
-soldiers ate, slept, and fought from a network of miles of dug trenches for months at a time
-Conditions: cold, wet, muddy= breeding ground for disease and lice
-"No Man's Land"
- a high powered rifle that would require a gun crew of 2-4 people created by Hiram Maxim
could fire 400 to 600 rounds per minute (equal to about 80 soldiers w/ rifles)
Guns often jammed
Were extremely heavy (80-120 pounds)
Would overheat and become inoperative
- Tanks were used later in the war (late 1916 early 1917)
-were largely used to break enemy lines/ run through barbed wire
used to forge enemy lines
soldiers used them as protection/walked behind them
Could only fit 3 soldiers at most
would often get stuck in the mud
-First used by the French, then developed by Germans
, usually chlorine, later Phosgene and Mustard gas were used.
-Fired upon soldiers in the trenches.
-PG considered "uncivilized" prior to WWI
-Chlorine gas once inhaled would destroy the victim's respiratory organs and bring on choking attacks
-mustard gas was odorless and would cause blisters inside and out on victims
-accounted for many deaths, early in the war
-hand held bombs usually detonated by impact or timed
-largely used in trench warfare
-bombing "parties" consisted of 7-9 men and would attack a trench by first throwing a grenade
invented by Samuel Morse
-countries communicated during the war with the telegraph
-extremely reliable way of sending messages
-over 100,000 were used
-a success rate of 95%
Airplanes were used for spying and fighting.
"Bombers" were pilots who would toss a bomb out the side of the plane with their hands.
They had to fly low to the ground which was dangerous because they could be shot down by enemy rifles
-One strategy of England was to try and "starve" Germany into surrender by "Blockading" ships that carried human needs.
Germany used "U-Boats" to sink any ships coming to England
-U boat = Underwater boat
-lightly armored- had to attack by surprise
-land mines were the most feared weapon you would lose limbs
Increased Industrialization and new technology
= more soldiers
new weapons and tactics of war
= more soldiers
= more soldiers
What happens to the soldiers?
What events challenged the United States
and caused the US to enter the war?
Sinking of the Lusitania
Sinking of the
Pres. Woodrow Wilson declares that US will remain "
1. It was largely seen as a "European Conflict"
2. Impact of Immigration on America= many different cultures in America
3. Civil War Vet's don't want more war
4. American business had interest in staying neutral to keep making money (they can trade with both sides)
Means...America continues to trade
make money off of both sides
Unrestricted Submarine Warfare
British try to blockade ships from trading with Germany, they stop trade ships as well as food ships.
In response- The Germans used "U-boats" to sink any ships coming to England in an effort to cut off supplies to England.
In May 1915, a German U-boat torpedoes a British passenger ship, the Lusitania, killing 1200 people, including 128 Americans.
In March 1916, another passenger ship is sunk.
- a French Ship.
80 casualties are American.
Germany agrees to
Germans needed to keep the US out of the war in Europe.

What steps did the United States take to
Men and Women
en & Women
= men were needed as soldiers to fight in the war.
= money for supplies and troops were needed to fight
=weapons and food were needed for soldiers
People needed to be influenced to support the war.
Solution to the need for soldiers=
Selective Service Act of 1917
required all males between the ages of 21 and 30 to register for the draft. Accounted for 3 million men to be drafted into war, including African Americans.
Women and War-
over 30,000 women volunteered as nurses and worked other jobs near the front lines.
They were not included in the draft.
Labor Shortage (Effect)
Millions of men in the military caused a
. Workers were needed in factories to make supplies.
Factory owners turned to:
2) African Americans
Congress raised taxes and encouraged the buying of
war bonds= bonds purchased that could later be cashed in for a return on your money
(basically a loan to the gov't).
National War Labor Board:
Was created to head the production of tanks, weapons,
planes, leather for uniform.
Herbert Hoover was chosen to head the FA.
Goal: to ensure adequate food and supplies for soldiers.
helped finance the war by raising 21 billion dollars.

French, British, US vs German
Turning point of the war on the Western Front. It began as a German offensive attack but ended as a successful Allied counter-attack. This marked the last real attempt by the Central Powers to win WW1. Allied Casualties were: French 95k, British 13k, United States 12K. For the Germans: 168k.
