Description

The Great War Comes to Wisconsin examines Wisconsin's response to World War I, the first "total war" of the twentieth century, a war so large that it engaged virtually everyone. Instead of a comprehensive history of the battlefield, this book captures the homefront experience: the political debates over war policy, the worry over loved ones fighting overseas, the countless everyday sacrifices, and the impact of a wartime hysteria that drove dissent underground. It also includes the voices of soldiers from Wisconsin's famed 32nd Division, through extensively quoted letters and newspaper accounts. Immerse yourself in the Wisconsin experience during World War I--a conflict that demonstrated America's great capacity for sacrifice and generosity, but also for prejudice, intolerance, and injustice.
