During WW1, Chancellor Bethmann Hollweg clashed repeatedly with the Supreme Army Command. He initially opposed unrestricted submarine warfare but eventually gave in to it, fully aware that it would prompt the US to enter the war. When, in July 1917, a Reichstag majority passed a peace resolution – a peace without annexations – he came under increasing criticism. The Kaiser also withheld his support and Hollweg was forced to resign on July 13, 1917.
