From the Publisher
"[T]his is a well-crafted work explaining how America's participation in The Great War changed not only our society, but also expanded the military's view of its role in national affairs and changed forever relations between the civil society and the US armed forces."
The Listening Post
"Civil-military relations are back in the news. There could not be a better time for fresh views on this vital subject. Nancy Gentile Ford's The Great War and America: Civil-Military Relations During World War is a welcome contribution. . . . One of the great virtues of The Great War and America is that it does not limit the topic of soldiers and civilians to issues about wartime dissent and controversy. Rather, Ford surveys the ripple effect of military service throughout the political, economic and cultural life of a nation at war. . . . Ford focuses on the dreadth of issues that really affect who we are and how we think about military service."
". . . Ford excels is in exposing the fault lines of progressivism itself. . . . Ford's tidy organization makes this book accessible and useful for general readers and undergraduates. . . . Recommended. General and undergraduate libraries."
