THE EFFECT OF THE EFFORT
OF THE UNITED STATES UPON THE WORLD WAR
Anyone, attempting to estimate the influence of the United States upon the World War, should first of all realize that America became a part of a military situation which differed from any that had gone before. In the history of the strategy of the war, the United States will be given its place as providing a reinforcement against a contained enemy at a well defined crisis. For this reason, in any true narrative of the war, the effort of America must be described as a separate strategic factor. That our nation's service should stand out in this way does not imply undue praise, nor any comparison with the continued efforts of the Entente Allies.
The military preparations of Germany had developed so great a strength that for four years the war remained a desperate struggle, with each of the great nations of the Entente suffering the constant strain of maintaining the contest. The year 1917 ended with Russia in military collapse, and the Italian armies so shattered that they had become a drain upon Great Britain and France, at a time when the British and French armies had been woefully depleted by the losses on the Western front.
It was true that the Central Powers had failed to win their expected decision through unrestricted submarine warfare, but the beginning of 1918 found them enabled to concentrate the full German strength upon the Western front, without any danger of a diversion elsewhere, as Russia had been put out of the war and the shattered Italians could not undertake an early offensive. The resultant freedom to move troops from the East gave the Germans an actual superiority in numbers,1 as the British and French resources in man1 "Numerically we had never been so strong in comparison with our enemies."- Ludendorff.
