The Great War of 1914-1918 left a residue of disruption and disillusion that spawned an even more ruinous conflict scarcely a generation later, and it confronted the United States with one of the most wrenching crises in the nation's history. Over Here is the first full-scale discussion of the impact of World War I on American society. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new afterword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author David M. Kennedy, which explains his reasons for writing the original edition as well as his opinions on the legacy of Wilsonian idealism, most recently reflected in President George W. Bush's National Security Strategy.show more
