A fateful American decision and the century pivots -- Stalemate on the Western front -- America watches a war -- Choosing war -- Mobilizing the nation -- Doughboys head for the Western front -- America breaks the stalemate -- Culmination: Armistice and Versailles --Legacy of a victors' peace -- And had America not blundered into war?
A detailed look at one of history's greatest turning points: "Drawing on a century's worth of meticulous research, Pines offers an extremely compelling and fast-paced, albeit controversial, view of how some of the most tragic and lethal events of the 20th century could have been avoided, had America not declared war on Germany. By examining how our engagement in World War One had such far-reaching effects, America's Greatest Blunder also serves as a cautionary and relevant tale for present and future generations regarding when and why America should intervene militarily overseas."--Back cover
