World War I and America:
Told By the Americans Who Lived It
Edited by A. Scott Berg

A landmark collection of American writing from the conflict that changed the world
“As A. Scott Berg’s riveting and timely new anthology shows, a century ago an extraordinary generation of Americans faced challenges that have unusual resonance now—our responsibility as the world’s major power, the clash between democratic ideals and racial injustice, the brutality of modern war and how it changes those who serve. Their voices tell the stunning story of a crucial period in the history of our nation.”
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
