An indispensable, sharply drawn tour through America's epoch-defining involvement in the Great War, enlivened by fresh insights into the key issues, events, and personalities of the period. After years of bitter debate and provocations on all sides, the U.S. declaration of war on Imperial Germany on April 6, 1917, plunged the country into the savage European conflict that would destroy-and remake-the world. The World Remade is an engrossing account of America's pivotal, still controversial, intervention into WWI, encompassing the prelude to war, its conduct abroad and at home, and its aftermath; and including the tumultuous politics and seismic shifts of the era and the towering personalities of the day-a briskly paced, timely treatment of the seminal conflict of the twentieth century, which set the stage for America's emergence as a world power and the global tragedies and triumphs to come. Key topics and insights include: A new look at the class-driven politics driving debate on the war; a fresh portrait of an ego-driven, punitive, increasingly isolated Woodrow Wilson and his small circle of advisors, prime for manipulation by the British and French; incisive analysis on the dynamics-and shared culpability-that led to war; the creation of a propaganda machine more massive and intrusive than any yet seen in the U.S.; unprecedented violations of civil liberties, including incarceration; new scrutiny of the aftermath: Versailles; the trajectories of the U.S. and Europe; the ultimate question: Was the U.S. entry into the war a tragic mistake?
