POLL DESCRIPTION
According to historian Geoffrey Wawro, in the final campaign of WWI, the British and French were able to kill four to five Germans for every one of their own casualties. The Americans, on the other hand, had a ratio closer of 1 to 1. What accounted for the Americans' higher cost of warfare?
