And I think most agree. But the fact still stands; WWI had no effect on Sweden because they didn’t have an alliance with either the UK or Germany, they would have had no choice if they did. We got involved because we had an alliance with Belgium who had an alliance with France who had an alliance with Slovakia or that other little country that I can’t remember. Sorry.
The Germans had an alliance with Austro-Hungarian Empire. The Russians had an alliance with us.
You can see why this war was so complicated. There are other alliances but I can’t be bothered to write it down to be honest.
Edit: You can't have ago at them for staying out of it. It wasn't there fight. The US only joined becuase they could have some money out of it.
