In 1918, Germany's surrender, bringing the First World War to an end, resulted from at least three related causes. First, the German people were exhausted and also suffering from the Allied sea-blockage of their country. Second, German troops were demoralized and war-weary, with many refusing to fight further. Third, Allied forces were increasing in strength, especially through the vigorous entry of the United States into the fray.

In Ferbruary, 1917, Germany declared unrestricted submarine war, the US became outraged and entered the war. The American (fresh) soldiers joined the French and British and pushed the Germans back. Meanwhile, in Germany there were strikes and protests against the war that had caused too much suffering and after establishing the British naval blockade, most people in the home front (or even in the other fronts) were starving. Luddendorf resigned in October, 1918,Kaiser Wilhelm abdicated in November, 1918. The armistice was signed in a railway carriage on 11 November, 1918.

In what year did the revolutionary war end the surrender of British general Cornwallis at Yorktown?

When the British came out to surrender and lay down their arms, Lord Cornwallis sent word that he was "sick" and remained in Yorktown. His deputy commander attempted to proffer his sword to the French general, who pointed him toward General Washington. Washington declined to accept the sword of this subordinate, and pointed him to General Benjamin Lincoln, one of Washington's division commanders. Lincoln had been captured in May 1780, when he had to surrender Charleston SC, and had recently been exchanged. So this formal gesture of surrender was received by Lincoln.This formal ceremony of surrender was on October 19, 1781, two days after the British showed a flag of truce.
