Description
When war broke out in Europe in August of 1914, Americans viewed it as the height of madness. Yet a mere three years later, the country was clamoring to join. Micheal S. Neiberg outlines America's lengthy debate and soul-searching about national identity, and the reactions to the dilemmas and crises that moved the country from ambivalence to belligerence. Neiberg also shows how the effects of the pivot from peace to war still resonate, and how the war transformed the United States into a financial powerhouse and global player. --,adapted from dust jacket.
