"A truly great book. It is simply superb in every way."—Senator George McGovern

"A superb, sympathetic account of the intellectual and political milieu surrounding Wilson's League of Nations."—Thomas G. Paterson, author of American Foreign Policy: A History

Editorial Reviews

The American Historical Review - Gary J. Ostrower
[This book] challenges virtually every recent historian who has tackled the subject. Knock demands that we see Wilson in a genuinely new framework and succeeds admirably.
The Times Literary Supplement - Arthur Schlesinger
Now that humanity is possibly drawing closer to ... [a] 'Federation of the World,' To End All Wars is an enlightening and valuable introduction to the birth of that noble vision.
