The article chronicles the history of the U.S. involvement in the World War I due to the January 1917 decision of Germany to resume unrestricted submarine warfare. The decision of Germany to deploy its submarines in 1917 was seen as a calculated risk to win the war for the Central Powers before the U.S. joined. On April 6, 1917, the U.S. declared war against Germany and its intervention benefited the economies of France and Great Britain.
