Before the Battle
 
   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.
