Ww1 British 1914

How to upset the Americans occurs when Brit was WW1 1914-18?

Just had a minor argument on an article I wrote Helium - http://www.helium.com/tm/850143/sinking-british-luxury-liner - With an American writer. Had a similar argument about WWII ago years, and I wonder if it is a sensitive issue, or just a couple of people liking to argue

I do not think the Americans get angry because that's how long WW1 lasted, they joined the fight in 1917.
