Onto the world stage
America steered clear of World War I for more than two years, but President Woodrow Wilson reluctantly led the divided nation into the conflict. By its end, four empires had fallen, communism was unleashed, the map of the Middle East was redrawn, and the United States emerged as a global power—only to become disillusioned with its failed efforts to build a lasting peace and withdraw from the world stage.
In this expansive history, Garrett Peck traces the American experience in the war, and the unexpected changes that rocked the country as it withdrew into isolationism—the Red Scare, race riots, women’s suffrage, and Prohibition.
Peck’s astute narrative offers a new opportunity to relive a pivotal turning point in American history.
