American Expeditionary Force
« on: 12-05-2010, 01:05:53 »
Ok, so for my American history class, I need to write a paper on anything in American history that interests me at all.  My first plan was writing about the affects of the Gallipoli Campaign on Australian nationalism, but that was before I was told it had to be American history.  So, now I am thinking of writing a paper on the AEF, its role in the Great War, and to see what sort of impact it had actually played on the outcome of the war.

I can't find much information on it, however.  So does anyone know much about this (Mudra?), or have any good resources, websites, books, etc.?

Ask Mudra and he will do it for you xD

Well, you have a library in your town? Or maybe a University, those librarys are superb
It’s a good time to learn how to find books and use them  ;D

Hey ho, didn want to piss you off  :o ???
Actually I mend that totally serious
I had to learn it for some works at university, but its great and I get fast good results 
At my library they have computers (I’m sure the one next to your place will have them too)

Normally they offer you a “search mask”, works a bit like google and there you go ,
Well and than again, a library of a University offers often more scientific information

Just sent you a PM noting two areas to look, as well as a very concise outline of some important talking points.   :)

Well, then check some books generally about the war, in your case about the Air battles, there should be something about the AEF, 
Its not like that if the AEF isn’t mentioned in the title there is nothing about the AEF in the book at all

Use more different search words, type in the name of some of the Aces of the AEF, maybe you find a personal story,  etc.   you know the drill, there should be something
And if you library does not offer anything at all, well then your library sucks if you want to get a better knowledge about that topic. Maybe then you should check out the library of a bigger city, normally I would not do that in the case of a paper for school but in your case you also seem the be personal interested into the topic so the effort would pay out for you

Americas big contribution to WW1 was its factories. They didnt provide the huge boost in manpower like in WW2. Most of the fighting was done by the European powers and Major Commonwealth Countries Like Canada, Australia, India and S Africa.

Eehhh, wrong.  Like I said to CPS in my PM, over 2,000,000 american troops served in the frontlines in WW1, with another 1,000,000 in training to serve.  By Sept 1918, the americans were holding down more of the front then the British, as well as being the main cause of victory, with the Meuse Argonne offensive that cut the german rear lateral rail lines, forcing their retreat out of northern france.

Not saying they didnt fight, just not like ww2. The Germans had been Ground down alot by the time the Americans arrived. Also the Canadians had just a big as an impact as the US in breaking the  German lines, look up Hundred Days Offensive.

Wikipedia is what I'd use. Just cite the same sources they have and don't mention using the evilness of wikipedia.
It's half naked people on boats. That's all.
