@5cats Yeah, it could have been important. It could have broken the British blockade or destroyed the German fleet. But it didn't. Considering the huge number of ships involved, it was a non-event. The Germans have assailed their jailor but remain in jail, and all of that.

Perfect description. Much funnier than those "facebook" things with countries.

@FredSpudman: Jutland had the potential to change the outcome of the war, had there been a decisive victory for either side. True, Canada wasn't involved but it is an example of a really important battle. Verdun is another, there's dozens of examples.

@DavidXJ: I agree! The USA gets blamed no matter what they do! Not fair at all, but that's reality.

I'm just saying that "historical revisionism" is a dangerously BAD thing! We repeat the history we don't understand, eh? Understanding what really happened as best we are able to is always the best thing.

It's funny how we get blasted for not getting involved sooner at times, and in other times, for getting involved at all. It's a lose, lose proposition.

But, to correct one statement... the version that we got in school is that we were going through a period where we didn't think we should get involved even though we were asked to get involved, and then by the time we actually DID get involved, things had gone to hell in a handbasket.

@5Cats Jutland changed nothing, and I didn't think it much involved the Canadians?

That would explain the crushed Molson can next to Germany's limp body.

@paperduck: Vimy Ridge
Before the USA even joined the war, please educate yourself.

Stormtrooper tactics and the surrender of Russia both came after the US entered, and both brought Germany close to victory. That and the use of gas.

Canada capturing a critically important defensive site, where 200,000+ French and British troops had fallen, was a blow the Germans never recovered from. That and Jutland...

Canadian "elite" troops played an important role in many battles. More than the USA did, it's a fact.

I think you'll find that NZ also punched Turkey but unfortunately it turned out that Turkey was taking boxing lessons on the sly.

I'd say Russia threw the first punch at Austria, Germany stepped in and then France and Britain told Germany to stop butting in.

Also: CANADA! HELLO!!!! We were there right from the beginning!

Germany wakes up the next day and realized his wallets gone. Pissed off, Germany does a montage work-out video. But still unsure of its veritity, picks on wimpy poland only if Russia , with its new personality, holds its ankles and wrists.

I'd like to read the WWII version. "America got pissed, shot Japan in the leg. Japan got up and kept coming at America, so America shot Japan in the other leg. Japan then, could not get up and threaten America anymore. America then took Japan and through it outside, telling it to never come back." Damn, sounds real bad when its told like that.

As for the family relations, a thousand years of strategic marriages meant that every royal family in Europe was and still is interrelated.

@drawman61 Most of the leaders in the First World War were cousins of some description. The whole thing could be fairly described as the biggest family feud in history. They were delusional, pompous monsters totally out of touch with both reality and humanity.

@drawman61: The problem with only looking at only the short term causes: the assassination of FF and the subsequent month that led to war is that it seems like the different actors are acting irrationally.
The fact of the matter is that tensions in Europe had been building since the Franco-Prussian war and the failure of Bismarck's alliance system, with aggravating factors such as colonialism and domestic issues in the major powers.
Many countries viewed war as inevitable, and the events of the summer of 1914 were just a pretext. Germany in particular not only saw war as inevitable, but felt the balance of power shifting out of its favor, and therefore thought that forcing the confrontation in 1914 was favorable to war happening in the subsequent years.
Military doctrine at the time (especially the Schlieffen plan) called for rapid attacks, therefore leaving very little room for diplomatic deescalation.

@Viking864 and to give the Russians their due, they're the ones who really made the Austro-Hungarians a non effective fighting force.

@drawman That the royal families of Europe are related should not be a surprise. There's a reason our royal family changed their name from Saxe-Coburg Gotha to Windsor when the balloon went up. Also, if the rule that the first born SON was the heir to the throne hadn't have existed, as I understand it, Kaiser Bill would have been the King of England.
