of the trenches where I sit here in the chair of wisdom and answer all your questions about the First World war. Marie writes Hi Indian crew with the UK only having recently entered the war and starting to massively expand its army personnel. What measures were taken to ensure the frontline Officer cadre, Captain’s, lieutenants, etc. Were suitably experienced before hitting the frontline Ie where people sent to French and British units as observers before hundreds of thousands more men took a deep dive into modern war UK keep up the great work. I love it when we get a UK and a question I don’t know why I just do okay here’s your answer pretty soon after the UK declared war on Germany.

French And British Military Missions Began Arriving

in Washington. Their objective was to observe the current state and. mobilization of theNK] Army and to advise the government on how to organize and train their troops. Many American officers still held fast and their belief that the army had to be trained in open warfare, and some even belittled the Europeans, claiming that their armies lacked aggressiveness because they had fought this deadlock for so long so their mission was to advise their troops about the reality of trench warfare and a general understanding of modern war. It is nowadays often discussed if they succeeded because of or in spite of General Pershing, who had his own ideas about how theNK] Army should fight but you will learn about that and our special about him.

The European Advisors Helped Restructure The

army into combat.-ready divisions dissolve the cavalry and pass on directives on trench warfare. Most warfare, most American forces were sent to support the French sector of the front, so they were naturally trained by the French Army and used French weaponry equipment and tanks later on on the continent. They had to rush things though and you can see the shortcomings because of that in the casualty rates of the early engagement. The officer cadre had not yet the experience and many UK lacked instructions in how to lead in operational warfare.

Many Of Those Lessons Had To Be Learned

through bitter and bloody fighting on the battlefield. Matthew says thanks for all the great work you’re welcome Matthew. My question is with the u. s. entering the war were there any movements to create internment camps or exclusion areas in the UK for German Americans as there were for Japanese Americans during World War two.

The Internment And Exclusion Of So-Called Enemy Aliens

was. in place in Europe and the Pacific Since the outbreak of the war, American diplomats were actually in constant contact between Berlin and London to mediate about the fate of those civilian prisoners, but as theNK] declared war on Germany in 1917, the American government used quite similar methods under the 1798 alien enemy Act. President Woodrow Wilson declared that all German nationals had to live under restrictions of their property and freedom. The concern that the 500,000 potential German reserves that lived in theNK] would cause a threat to national security. A threat that was apparently boasted of before by Arthur Zimmermann.

  • general understanding modern war
  • service huge standing army europeans
  • question entering war movements
  • people sent french british units
  • british military missions began arriving

The German Foreign Minister Led To Oppression And

a general state of mistrust. German communities were under constant surveillance by the police. Certain pro-german newspapers and clubs were were forbidden and thousands were arrested and interrogated they had to register themselves and carry identification cards. cards with them around under two and a half thousand, but somewhere around 2,300 were constantly interned in camps in daily life. Many national Germans or American citizens who had emigrated from Germany and were considered not naturalized Americans.

They Faced Social Exclusion And Animosity.

A German surname could lead to people losing their jobs, especially in the public sector. Panic mistrust xenophobia led to a hostile environment for many and bad news from the front or an international incident could lead to more arrests, more violence and more protests. Many of these regulations would last all the way until 1920 when a new enemy was found in common and the Red Scare began. William Acosta writes, this might be out of the purview of this series, but I’ll ask nonetheless, what do you think of bowling and what’s your average okay yeah No I hate it right that I.

Just Making That He Right He Did

say he laughed nonetheless okay let’s see it you’ve often mentioned that at the beginning of the war, most of the Warring nations actually my average used to be 182. When I used to vote, but I hurt my hand and so I don’t know anyway I was good. Most of the warring nations believed that the war would be quick and easy based off the results of the Franco–prussian war, and they believed that the long bloody American Civil War was too alien to be considered relevant even though in the end, the Great War ended up resembling in many ways the American Civil War. Why was the Franco–prussian war such a quick war? In comparison to the American Civil War well the disregard for the American Civil War by many European generals and military theoreticians came from the perception that it. a war of amateurs, theNK] had a martial culture, especially in the South shore, but it didn’t possess a long military tradition.

It Had No Compulsory Service And

no huge standing army. While the Europeans had many larger or smaller engagements on their continent. During the 19th century. TheNK] was pretty much confined to small-scale engagements, like like expeditions into Mexico or against native tribes. The lack of professional soldiery and of a highly trained officer cadre showed in the early stages of the Civil War.

Many European Spectators Compared The Battles

to two mobs exhausting themselves by just throwing soldiers on the battlefield, who took inaccurate shots at each other until one side was forced to retreat into the wilderness. It’s true so they thought for the European generals, who thought of warfare as an affair of professional staff, work modern infrastructure and highly drilled soldiers. The soldiers, the American Civil War seemed out of place and it lacked the numbers of modern artillery and even cavalry. The Franco–prussian war was by comparison in many ways a textbook example of a classic European war.

The Forces By Prussia, Well As Well

as their adversary France could rely on large mobile armies that were supported by a sophisticated network of roads and railways. Prussia was able to mobilize and field its army quicker, which led to the trapping of one French army at Metz and the other encircle that said on. It was a quick war of outmaneuvering at least until the Third Republic through its Laden. The American Civil War in the end was decided in a large part by economic factors where the NOrth could basically hold its breath longer.

There Are Some Undeniable Comparisons To

be drawn between the slogging total war of that time. Deadlock in Europe after 1914, but that question is well, It’s already too long for this format.
