  • Woodrow Wilson 14 Points Speech Analysis

    World War One (WWI) was a crucial turning point for the United States. The U.S. was involved in WWI partly because of Germany’s submarine warfare on other European nations.

To no avail, the U.S. had to enter the war to try to subdue the hostile negotiations in Europe. The war had just ended when Wilson delivered The Fourteen Points speech, which was intended to propose world peace and the actions that had to be taken in order to achieve that peace. By dissecting the content of the Fourteen Points, the reader can understand the implications and impact Wilson’s speech had on the audience.

  • Analyze The Differences Between Italy And German Unification
