I was on Facebook the other day and I found this website by College Humor. It's basically text messages of Countries stating their messages according to History. I thought it was pretty cool. (100 years war - Beginning of Cold War)

That might be partly true Sir Richard, but in neither war did Germany take any land beyond the English Channel. The Germans couldn't take over from Winston Churchill in WW2 and in WW1, David Lloyd George was never going to give into them. If it wasn't for his actions post-1918, DLG would have gone down in history as the best British Prime-Minister ever, but in my view, he was better than Churchill.

True offical monster, the uk wouldnt of never gave in, nor surrendered. Unless unconditionally.
The germans ww1, where winning and had great succes in the bigging. But yes the english, i believe that the new weapon they constructed. Turn the tie of the war. Before the tank, and resuply the germany allmost reached paris, yes they did withdraw but to more defencive position. Till 1917 the allies now being HALF THE WORLD had major succes. Bring back the tank, and vital resupply of amo and troops( american troops both canadian and american)? They where able to starve the germanys into subition.

THIS ISNT A FACT, ITS MORE OF MY OPPINION THE GERMAN WORNT DEFFEATED, IN WW1. IT WAS MORE OF A SIEZE FIRE UNTIL WW2.
I MIGHT EVEN THINK THAT WW1 WW2 where the same war but with some time in between.

Some of you guys need history lessons:

In 1914 (WW1) Britain sent a small army of 100,000 soldiers this was the British expeditionary force. Arguably without this force to help France, Paris would of been taken. There were three battles Britain helped in 1914:

•Battle of mons - The British were outnumbered but clearly showed they were better soldiers than the Germans, they slowed the Germans down but had to retreat because of the large amount of German forces. Because they slowed them down, France had a chance to go back to defend Paris.

•Battle of the Marne - The British played an important role, helping France defend Paris. Most significantly spotting a gap in the Germans line. After both these battles, Britain had doubtlessly helped to stop the German Schleifen plan. Though there are other factors.

•Battle of Ypres - Britain then had to race against Germany to the channel ports. At Ypres Britain defended and stopped Germany from taking the ports. Without the ports means, no supplies or fresh troops.

With fail of the Schleifen plan Germany retreated a short distance and dug in, in good positions. This left a stalemate obviously for the next 3-4 years. So clearly Germany wasn't defeated nor was Britain and France. But because later on Britains new weapons, USA joined the war etc.

THIS ISNT A FACT, ITS MORE OF MY OPPINION THE GERMAN WORNT DEFFEATED, IN WW1. IT WAS MORE OF A SIEZE FIRE UNTIL WW2.


It's alright just forget all the events in between each war and the different people and generals etc. ;)

Schleifen plan

Apollo is a Brit. I guess. The actually plan is the "Von Schlieffen plan" named after the German general Von Schlieffen (duhh)



The British played an important role, helping France defend Paris.

The Von Schlieffen plan depicted the idea to not attack the city of Paris through Belgium. The German troops weren't actually heading to Paris because they knew the French would reinforcement their troops.

The Von Schlieffen actually failed.

The 4 main reasons were:
-Belgian resistance
-France wasn't that suprised, they already had deployed troops at the Belgian-French border
-Russia mobilizes faster than expected
-British participation in the war

The trench warfare ended with the first tanks and the American participation spread a new disease into the world: the Spanish flu.
It is estimated that there were more victims of the Spanish flu than were victims of World War 1.

The website of CollegeHumor which depicts countries speaking to each other is unoriginally. This is the website where they took it from : http://www.uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/World_War_I_(video_game)

I spelt it wrong. Big deal.

Hang on. What are you proving wrong? You just emphasised everything I said.

The Von Schlieffen plan depicted the idea to not attack the city of Paris through Belgium.

Read - I said the Battle of the Marne.

The German troops weren't actually heading to Paris because they knew the French would reinforcement their troops

What were they doing then?

The Von Schlieffen actually failed.

No shit.

I saw something about poor, outnumbered Germany losing WWI only because they were outnumbered.

If you're going to be outnumbered, then don't declare the war unless you have a superior number that can account for those disadvantages.

Alot of people like to dub the Spring Offenseive without the Americans in the war as a German victory. I simply don't think this is the case. The Germans most likely would not have made it to Paris without unconventional warfare. I doubt them making it to Paris, even with the Russians gone.

Germany found out a new bitter enemy (who their Austrian friends also met) that was stronger than battle: starvation. The war was soaking up their supplies and food. Ersatz became staple. Germans, Austrians and Hungarians under a deadly naval blockade were slowly dying. Despite the myth that Germans and their descendants like to convince themselves, U Boats were not invincible, nor could they do enough damage to bring supplies to the Central Powers. Starvation was making the Germans question their will to fight.

I once, on a documentary, saw the struggles the Germans faced. They were being slowly destroyed from within all to supply the soldiers with food and weapons. The military was running the show. Dictators von Ludendorff and Hindenburg were having the German culture bleed to win the war. Starvation and disease aside, I saw an appalling seen in the documentary. The Germans were stripping everything they had for scrap metal. Even the great Churchbells that had bellowed during 1914 were being called for because Germany was scraping the bottom for metal. The sight of the bells being dismantled saddened many. All for the cause to win a war that was killing their nation.

The Austrians faced similar struggles in their empire. The Ottoman army was collapsing. Yes, it appears that the Austro-German military could go on forever but their families at home were dying. When the Spring Offensive failed, and France began driving into Alsace ths country was ripe for turmoil. So struck the nation. Germany, the military juggernaut doomed to fall eventually.


HISTORY SIDE NOTE: The soldiers on the front lines were well equipped and supplied. The Germans new little about the troubles at home. When turmoil began plaguing the nation, they did not understand why. Not much had changed for them. In fact they weren't very far from the positions before the Spring Offensive. Yet when they suddenly and unconditionally surrendered, German soldiers looked for a reason why. They could not find much failures on the front, so it must have happened by a few degenerate men at home. Thus the "Stabbed in the Back" myth formed.
