Post Mistakes of the Great War

I was taught in high school, the Great War was primarily caused by the Germans. Alone with it being all about the Kaiser Wilhelm's attempt to compensate for his weak left arm. In college, at least I was told the US was not neutral and provided a lot of munitions and financing to the Allies. Banker JPMorgan arranged a lot of loans to Britain, with virtually nothing going to Germany. The 1916 effort by the Central Powers to end the war was not discussed.

If the war had ended in 1916, there would have been no Treaty of Versailles, no Communism and no Adolf Hitler. Perhaps this view is a bit simplistic. But, no worse than the weak left arm theory. The Kaiser and and his government, does seem incompetent and failed to see the risks of war. But, that can be said about France & Great Britain was well. I don't think the USA should have gotten involved, if the Western Powers didn't grab this, or any opportunity available to end the bloodshed.
