Ok, I suppose that's an answer and I should interpret it as: I would be the Eurotroll.
1. I am sorry for having been a bit abrupt in my comments: I honestly believe that it's totally absurd to sustain that "America played the key role in German defeat in World War I". And I do believe that till now, You haven't brought any valuable argument to sustain that allegation (and You will not, because You can't, as there isn't any argument to be brought for sustaining that). And Sam as others had demonstrated it way too well for me to interfere anymore. It would be redundant.
2. I suggested You one link on the situation in Germany, as I thought it would be usefull to look a bit into it, and as I wanted to let draw Your conclusions by Yourself, and afterwards (maybe ...) discus it. (it was here, like that You don't need to search):
"To be honest, that analysis, is lacking a fundamental aspect: Germany. Reading it, one would say that allies were on the brink of collapse, while Germany (and Austro-Hungary) were turning flawlessly, at full speed. Which is utterly false. The mutinies were mentioned previously in this thread. There was more than just mutinies in armies. I suggest to begin with this small study (it is in English) on one of the aspects of the war in Germany, rarely mentioned, although more than important: Labour Movements and Strikes, Social Conflict and Control, Protest and Repression (Germany) | International Encyclopedia of the First World War (WW1)"
I responded in the same line (lack of information) to Martin's post (post #78) and I suggested reading Food and Nutrition (Germany) | International Encyclopedia of the First World War (WW1)).
Out of curiosity: did You opened those links, did You red them?
