Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The best single volume on the American war effort." — Allan Millett

"[Coffman] can explain complex matters in a few sharp paragraphs, illuminate technical discussions with personal vignettes, and use statistics to clarify rather than confuse.... Should become standard reading in twentieth-century American history courses." — Indiana Magazine of History

"A history of the entire American military involvement in World War I, it is widely regarded as the most authoritative work on its topic." — Lexington Herald-Leader

"It is quite simply one of the best accounts of US participation in WW I." — Paper Wars

"Indispensable." — Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

"Will surely stand as the first source for anyone interested in the conflict." — Stephen Ambrose

"As a reference on the American military presence in World War I, Coffman's book should be a standard for anyone interested in such studies." — Tallahassee Democrat

"A detailed picture of America's first great world military engagement." — UK News

"The Embattled Past" is a delightful little book, filled with interesting tidbits about American military history and some fascinating stories about historians, the teaching of history, and historical research." — J. W. Thacker, Bowling Green Daily News
