In time for the centennial of the United States' entry into World War I, this collection of essays explores the war experience in Utah from the multiple perspectives of soldiers, nurses, and ambulance drivers who experienced the horror of the conflict firsthand to those on the home front whom the war transformed. Citizens at home took active roles in supporting the war effort. Some of Utah's Native Americans and at least one Episcopal bishop resisted the war. The terrible 1918-1919 flu pandemic hit Utah and killed more victims around the world than those who died on the battlefields. A Red Scare and a fight over United States participation in a League of Nations followed the war. These essays help us understand the nature and complexity of the conflict and its impact on Utahns.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The short but powerful essays make the book an enjoyable and interesting read. This collection draws the reader into a mixture of the military, political, and social atmospheres of the time and offers unique insight into the lives of everyday Utahns."--On Point

"It is very significant to have these articles collected into one publication now that the centennial of World War I is here. It is especially important in helping us to remember that history repeats itself and that we have been through the same emotions in the past that we are going through today."
--Robert S. Voyles, director of the Fort Douglas Military Museum


"A well-organized collection of articles that progress from the state's military contributions to the Great War through political, protest, and health activities to the aftermath. Relevant to both scholars and general readers, this book is multidimensional."
--Walter Jones, author of The Sand Bar: A History of Casper, Wyoming's Controversial Lowlands


"The essays included in this book have added significantly to our understanding of American life on the home front during the Great War. I would recommend that those who teach Utah state history at any level pick this book up."--Association of Mormon Letters
