What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This book is an excellent account of the mobilization of British, French, and American universities in war and peace. It is a major contribution to the cultural history of the 1914-18 conflict and its aftermath." - Jay Winter, Yale University, USA

"The Great War, we are constantly reminded, was above all a war of brains as well as bravery. In this vast international struggle, universities around the world were mobilized. In this much-needed comparison of Allied and American universities, Dr Irish reveals the depth and direction of the role of the university in the Great War, and explores the tensions that have threatened to fracture the future of internationalism. It is a compelling story, and one that should find a place on every scholar's shelves." - Roy MacLeod, University of Sydney, Australia
