America in World War I: Crash Course US History #30
From YouTube, produced by crashcourse
John Green talks about American involvement in World War I, which at the time was called the Great War. They didn't know there was going to be a second one, though they probably should have guessed, 'cause this one didn't wrap up very neatly. So, the United States stayed out of World War I at first, because Americans were in an isolationist mood in the early 20th century. That didn't last though, as the affronts piled up and drew the US into the war. Spoiler alert: the Lusitania was sunk two years before we joined the war, so that wasn't the sole cause for our jumping in. It was part of it though, as was the Zimmerman telegram, unrestricted submarine warfare, and our affinity for the Brits. You'll learn the war's effects on the home front, some of Woodrow Wilson's XIV Points, and just how the war ended up expanding the power of the government in Americans' lives. (13:40)

World War I - Weapons and Technology
From watchmojo.com, produced by WatchMojo
Though they may seem primitive today, the weapons and technology used during World War I completely revolutionized the way wars were fought. These weapons and technologies also had a significant impact on the outcome of the war. From the use of machine guns and bolt-action rifles, to the popularization of grenades, poison gas and finally tanks, World War I set the stage for all wars that followed it. This war also helped troubleshoot many of the problems with these technologies, helping streamline warfare for years to come. In Part 6 of our series on WWI, WatchMojo learns more about the weapons and technology used during the First World War. (01:59)

Start of US Intervention in The Vietnam War
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video is accompanied by text. "In 1945, Communist leader Ho Chi Minh proclaimed a Democratic Republic of Vietnam and named Hanoi its capital. During World War II, Ho secretly received American assistance against the Japanese, but the financial aid stopped when the war ended because Truman refused to continue offering support to a known Communist. In 1946, the French government recognized Ho's Viet Minh government as a "free state" within the northern portion of the French-controlled region. By the end of the year, however, Ho challenged attempts by the French to begin a new regime in southern Vietnam. The conflict damaged relations between the two governments and started the First Indochina War..."
