| It was "The
War to End All Wars." It started, in 1914, in Europe and spread
through Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, Mesopotamia, Arabia, northern
and southern Africa, and the oceans of the world. The United States tried
to keep from being embroiled, but unrestricted sinking of ships in the
Atlantic Ocean and diplomatic pressures brought the American Expeditionary
Forces, under the command of General John J. Pershing, to France in 1917.
This war introduced modern weapons and tactics; motorized transport, machine guns, tanks, updated submarines with self-propelled torpedoes, Zeppelin dirigible bombers, aeroplanes, poison gas, and psychological warfare.
