Description

Being in the United States' backyard, it was little surprise when Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, and Honduras joined the war in 1917 and 1918. Their involvement was small, but it earned these powerless nations an invitation to sit alongside the Great Powers at the Paris Peace Conference and sign the Treaty of Versailles.
