Pub. Date:
Ford (history, Bloomsburg U.) provides insights into the contexts of the transition from isolation to participation, including the shifts in federal legislative and military policy and perceptions of foreign affairs. She also covers the resulting effects on the US military and moves to improve military and civil preparedness; the civil implications of a very diverse mass of citizen-soldiers and the ramifications of training everyone to fight; cooperation between civil and military authorities to mobilize public opinion and stifle dissent; approaches to science and technology in creating modern warfare; and the efforts of the War Department to get soldiers employed after the war.
