Publisher's Summary

When World War I erupted, Americans fiercely debated US involvement; the nation had a deep tradition of avoiding foreign wars. But while the Spanish-American War had challenged this tradition, the First World War would shatter it.

Ralph Raico and the war that was the beginning of the end

I do not listen to many audiobooks, but this was one that I could not pass up. Ralph Raico and the veteran actor George C. Scott teamed up to present this brilliant summary of the folly that was World War I. With actors voicing dialog, I found it to be interesting and that it told well the financial and moral devastation that the war brought and still brings to this day. Some facts were mixed up such as Jeannette Rankin being from Idaho instead of Montana, but the audiobook was informative for the must part. If you have a Fire reader, I urge you to put this on your device. Five stars.
