Organise your answer by mentioning how each of the following played a role in the defeat of Germany:
• The BEF;
• Trench warfare;
• Britain’s contribution to the Western Front,
• New weapons – tanks
• The war at sea
• The contribution of Empire troops;
• Support of American troops


Post again if you require further help!

This site gives an brief summary account of what each and every country which fought in the war did - http://www.channel4....ndex_comba.html

Another way in to assessing their contribution might be to look at this table of casualties - http://www.firstworl.../casualties.htm

And if you want to go into great detail/ find a little 'colour':

On the role of the Empire troops on the web.
There is an account of New Zealan;s role here - http://www.firstworl...s/utterends.htm
Canadian soldiers - http://www.firstworl.../blackwatch.htm
There is something on the Sikhs here - http://www.firstworl...thegreatwar.htm
An account of an Australian VC - http://www.firstworl...res/shoutvc.htm

On America in the Great War see here - http://www.eyewitnes...com/snpwwi1.htm
An account of the Americans in action here - http://www.firstworl.../pathoffire.htm

I am doing an essay also but the title of my essay is called The Entry Of The USA Into The War Was The Main Reason For The Defeat Of Germany.’
How Far Do You Agree with This Statement? I wondered what 'Trench Warfare' had to do with the winning of the war? Also what did the BEF do which was so good that it helped win the war?

The way to do this kind of essay goes like this:

Section 1. The argument for the proposed idea
Section 2. The argument for the other ideas
Section 3. Your conclusion

So you will write:
1. a section giving all the ways that the coming of the Americans helped to win the war.
Then you will say: 'However, it can be argued that many other things were just as important in winning the war' and then you will write:
2. a section talking about ALL the other factors which helped win the war and why.
Then you will say: 'So, which was the most important - was it the Americans, or all the others?' and then you will write:
3. a section saying which you choose and why.



As for you individual questions:
a. The BEF was vital in stopping the Schlieffen Plan in the opening stages of the war (research Mons). Not strictly the BEF, but British forces were also important in various campaigns, not least Somme, Passchendaele and 1918 - without the British, the French army would have collapsed in 1917.
b. Trench warfare was important for reducing the war to a war of attrition, which the British won.

PS dont forget to say 'please' - everybody does on this forum.
