The Allied Powers soundly defeated the Germans in the First World War. Germany surrendered on November 11, 1918; however, they continued secret development of warplanes after their defeat, and quickly built the largest and more advanced air force the world had ever seen. In 1935, the German Nazis proudly displayed their air power to intimidate other nations. Hermann Goering, the leader of the German Luftwaffe (Air Force) invited distinguished American pilots, Charles Lindbergh and Gill Robb Wilson, to view the German aeronautical achievements. Lindbergh thought that there would be a European war and the United States should stay out of it. Wilson took the opposite view, believing that the United States would be dragged into war as it had been in the First World War, and that America should prepare by organizing commercial aviation resources for patrolling against German submarines.
In the late 1930s, both Lindbergh and Wilson, went their separate rounds, giving speeches explaining their different positions to gain support of the American people to their point of view.
