The USA Changes WW I -American Vice Admiral, William Sims, wanted to use a convoy system against U-Boats, a system in which military boats escorted other ships. -The USA navy created a barrier of water mines in the North Sea to fight against German U- boats as well. -America joining the war increased the attitudes and confidence of the other soldiers by joining the Allies.

There must be free trade between nations and an attempt to abolish or lower tariffs. -4. The world must reduce arms in all countries. -5. Territories should gain more interest in the mother country policies. -The next 8 were boundary changes based on ethnicity for various countries in Europe. -The 14th point created the League of Nations as a venue of discussion between nations.
  10. 10.

  23. 23. The Impact of WW I on the World -Many in the USA wanted “normalcy” and not to be involved in European affairs. The USA government and military became more powerful. -Powerful fears appeared provoked by ideas sweeping Europe. Europe experienced massive causalities, political instability, and violence remained. -The first Communist state was established in Russia. In the decades that followed, militant Fascists rose up and took Italy, Spain, and Germany.
