Americans in the Great War : a photographic testimony

«Photo exhibition»

On April 6 1917 USA declared war to the German Empire. This happened to be a major event in the conflict for it completely upset the balance of forces on financially and industrially, not to forget the moral boost it gave to the Entente.

Of course, another relief for the Allied was the arrival of a two million Sammies force on the Front by July 1918.
