Similarities and Differences Between the World Wars

Similarities and differences between WWII and WWI.

There are many similarities between WWI WWII. One of them is the U.S. isolation in the beginning of the war and how they entered the war later. In the First World War the fighting was mostly in Europe so the U.S. was not affected. Then U.S. entered the war because Germany sunk many of the merchant ships from U.S. near the British waters and also because Germany wanted Mexico to attack the U.S. During the Second World War the fighting was not in the U.S. so it was not affected. But then the U.S. told Japanese to withdraw from china and also the U.S. stopped selling oil and scrap iron to the Japanese. Then without declaring war on the U.S., the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. That’s how the U.S. entered the Second World War. In both wars the U.S. only entered after being attacked. The second one is almost the same countries were fighting in both wars. In the First World War there was the Triple Entente and the Triple Alliance. The Triple entente was made of Britain, France and Russia. The Triple Alliance was made up of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy. Then in the Second World War there was the Allied and the Axis Power. The Allied was made up of Britain, France, China and other countries that joined later on. The Axis Power was made up of Germany, Japan, Romania, Hungary, and Italy. The major countries involved were the British and the French against the Germans. 

There are also many differences between WWI and WWII. One of the differences are in WWI most of the fighting was in Europe, in fixed fronts. It was on fixed fronts because it was a less mobile war. It was mainly trench warfare. In comparison WWII was fought internationally. There wars in the Pacific, North Africa, Europe, East Asia and China. WWII was more of a world war than WWI. The second difference was the treaty and it’s effects of the treaty. The treaty after WWI was the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty limited Germany’s army and their weapons also they couldn’t join forces with Austria-Hungary.
