That must be why the British and Australians basically won the war in the summer of 1918.... :D (y)
America was putting 10,000 fresh soldiers into the front lines every day in the summer of 1918. This freed up British and French soldiers for counter-offensives against the Germans.

Hindenburg himself admitted it was the Americans who won the war.

Nobody won WW1.
An armistice is neither a surrender or a victory.

The Germans were shafted by the French and the Americans,
The totally unjust Versailles treaty destroyed Germany [who were not defeated in the field] and paved the way for Nazism.

It was the American insistence on the destruction of the German royal family that really paved the way for an upstart like Hitler.

There is little doubt but American blundering and arrogence carries a heavy responsibility for WW2 which in reality was just a continuation of WW1.

If only all the dead guys at Verdun knew? They wouldn't had to have bothered

Have you ever thought about focusing more on geopolitics than religion?

Spent a week at Verdun back in 2008

- it's a one horse town

- the battles actually took place in the hills to the east of the fortress

- not in the town itself.
