Reasons why United States of America delayed in joining the first world war are;

  • The Monroe Doctrine of Isolation of 1923
  • Many people of German descent in U.S.A and there was fear that if U.S.A declared war on Germany the war would shift to American soils.
  • U.S.A had commercial interest with the two countries therefore she did not want to take risk
  • The war had not interfered directly with U.S.A
