Germany had a plan to try and prevent Britain from getting supplies for war by using unrestricted submarine warfare (the German U boats). At first they only sank Allied ships, but one ship they sunk, a passenger ship called the "Lusitania", held a very large amount of passengers and many of them died. The U.S. threatened to go to war, but Germany backed down and stopped the sinking. After a little while, they thought they could bargain and started up again this time sinking allied ships as well as neutral ships. They thought they could be able to prevent Britain from receiving their supplies before the U.S. joined the war; they were wrong.
2.) Another event leading up to World War 1 was the Zimmerman telegram, a telegram sent from German to Mexico to joint the war on their side and defeat the Americans. Of course, it was caught and decoded (it was in a secret code) and the Americans stopped them. Mexico decided to stay neutral.
The events that brought the usa in to WW1 were The Zimmerman Note and The America Acts. In the end, the effect of World War I on Oklahoma was, at best, mixed. The increase in crop prices proved to be short-lived; shortly after the war's end Oklahoma farmers began suffering the effects of an agricultural depression that would last for more than a decade, a crisis that was tied to the conflict's imperfect peace. Even more significantly, the use of intimidation to artificially limit the scope of political discourse proved to be one of the more enduring legacies of American involvement in the European war. Under such conditions, the political dialogue shrank considerably as those holding positions considered to be outside of the mainstream were prevented from articulating them.
