sorry if I repet the question: is really that a big part of white americans have german ancestry?
so what happened during world war I and world war II?

And I dunno. Germans had been helping the US since the rebellion against Britain.
Naturally, our ancestors were migrating since then.
There was even talk of our official language being German instead of English. Glad it wasn't.

Yes. They were not put in "concentration camps", like Japanese Americans, (though SOME were), but yes. There are quite a few Americans who (even today) speak German as a first language.

Trying to avoid upsetting the Americans of German ancestry was probably a factor in the country's late involvement in both WW1 and WW2.
