  • nationalism
  • imperialism
  • militarism
  • alliance
  • assassination
  • trench
  • front
  • blockade
  • convoy
  • propaganda
  • reparations
  • neutrality
  • Zimmermann Note
  • John J. Pershing
  • Battle of Argonne
  • Wilson’s 14 Point Plan
  • League of Nations
  • Treaty of Versailles
