More critically, the combined Chateau-Thierry/Belleau Wood action brought to an end the last major German offensive of the war. The French name for the wood, Bois Belleau, was subsequently officially renamed Bois de la Brigade de Marine, in honour of the Marine Corps's tenacity in its re-taking.

Dear US citizens, There is no reason to worry we will have this all under control. In the years following WWI we as a country took many different approaches at keeping peace. The Treaty of Versailles, the peace treaty that ended WWI punished Germany for starting the war, Germany was not allowed to have heavy artillery, was forced to give up colonies in Africa, and for causing the war Germany was to pay $33 billion dollars in damages. The League of Nations was an organization to prevent future wars. You can’t forget the Washington conference when the US, Japan, Italy, and France all scraped their battleships and agreed not to build anymore for 10 years.
Truman:- Harry Truman was president of America after the death of F D Roosevelt in April 1945. Harry Truman gave the order for the atomic bombs to be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and he represented the United States at Potsdam, the last of the great war meetings. Harry Truman was born in 1884 in Lamar, Missouri. He was brought up in a rural background and in World War one he served on the Western Front as a captain in the American artillery. After the war, he took a law degree at Kansas City and after this he moved into the social and political circles of the Democrat Party.
From 1935 to 1939 Eisenhower served under MacArthur as assistant military advisor to the Philippines. He returned to the United States in 1940, over the next two years he was stationed in California and Washington state. In 1942, he was promoted to major general. Just months later, he became commander-in-chief of the Allied Forces and led Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of North Africa. When Germany surrendered in 1945, he was made military governor of the U.S.
Heinrich Himmler was born in 1900 and died in 1945. Heinrich Himmler was to become one of the most feared men in Nazi Germany and Europe once World War Two broke out. As head of the SS, he had ultimate responsibility of internal security in Nazi Germany and was associated with helping to organise the Final Solution though Reinhard Heydrich. He also had a major input into the organisation of the Holocaust. He was old enough to serve in the German Army in 1918 and saw out the last days of World War One.
Understanding Military Downsizing BUS 610 Dr. Prior February 25, 2012 Understanding Military Downsizing On October 21st, 2011, President Obama held a press conference, one of many actually, where he stated “virtually all U.S. troops will come home from Iraq by the end of the year -- at which point he can declare an end to America's long and costly war in that Middle Eastern nation.” (cnn.com, 2010) Over the past nine years, in order to even fight the “War on Terrorism” as previous President Bush once said, the military branches had to increase their fighting strength and with September 11th still fresh in most peoples’ minds, this was not a difficult task. People from all walks of life and from every corner of the United States, were joining the service to help fight terrorist activities in Afghanistan and Iraq. While the Iraq war was going on, the world economy took a major hit which caused even more people to join the military services. So the influx of people wanting to join the service from the result of September 11th and the economic downturn has
He goes on to further explain this in his address to the Senate only weeks after the war began (Doc A). Wilson says that he not only plans on keeping the United States a neutral country but he urges the public to remain neutral as well. He says that it is “entirely within our own choice” whether or not America gets involved because they had not been directly affected by the war at that point. Almost a year later however, a German U-Boat had sunk a British vessel, the Lusitania, killing over 100 American civilians (Doc B). In response to the incident Wilson states that the American and German governments must resolve the situation together in order to get a better understanding of what happened and allow the American government to remain neutral.
The pledge was kept until January 1917, when the original policy of unrestricted submarine warfare resurfaced. Germany felt that by cutting off supplies it could end the war on its terms before the United States could react. Shortly afterward, the United States cut off diplomatic relations with Germany, a step preparatory to war. In
