modernize agriculture, and eventually re-invent Argentine society and economy and strengthen the nation. Thanks to French and American investments, the dream came to fruition, with thousands of new jobs created and a stronger economy. An industrialized economy meant new railways and telegrams that connected the nation, as well as factories in Buenos Aires. Argentina became one of the world's ten richest nations.

In terms of the military, the army was modernized, with new rifles and artillery. Argentina would confirm alliances with Peru, Bolivia, and Venezuela during the 1890s. Argentina would become a member of the Allied Coalition and ally with France and the United States in 1901. This meant that Argentina's enemy Brazil would join the London Pact, and the continent was divided between the two powers.

After early victories in Chile, the Argentine army turned east and stopped the Brazilian advance in Argentina. Trench warfare bogged down both sides during 1913 and 1914, with Argentine slowly pushing Brazilian forces out of Argentina. In 1915, Argentine generals organized the Spring Offensive, and pushed the battered Brazilian forces across the Rio de La Plata and back into Brazil. Several Argentine victories and the capture of São Paulo forced Brazil to call for a ceasefire. The First World War had ended with an Argentine victory.
