The Great War in America: World War I and Its Aftermath

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Garrett Peck

Narrated By: Joe Barrett

Duration: 13 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

A chronicle of the American experience during World War I and the unexpected changes that rocked the country in its immediate aftermath-the Red Scare, race riots, women's suffrage, and Prohibition.

Though overshadowed by the tens of millions of deaths and catastrophic destruction of World War II, the Great War was the most important war of the twentieth century. It was the first continent-wide conflagration in a century, and it drew much of the world into its fire. By the end of it, four empires and their royal houses had fallen, communism was unleashed, the map of the Middle East was redrawn, and the United States emerged as a global power-only to withdraw from the world's stage.

The Great War is often overlooked, especially compared to World War II, which is considered the 'last good war.' The United States was disillusioned with what it achieved in the earlier war and withdrew into itself. Americans have tried to forget about it ever since. The Great War in America presents an opportunity to reexamine the country's role on the global stage and the tremendous political and social changes that overtook the nation because of the war.
