Abstract:

"As U.S. involvement continues to be a controversial factor in contemporary conflicts around the world, The Doughboys establishes the genesis of America's internationalist role in war and in peacetime held throughout most of the 20th century. Against the background of the entrenched isolationist sentiments of the early 1900s, The Doughboys examines how America overcame its reluctance to join what was seen as an Old World conflict and become involved in the First World War." "The Doughboys is a historical account of American soldiers whose valorous contributions in battle earned them a revered and lasting place in history."--Jacket.
