The war, which many thought would be history's last, began in a region once again in the news near the end of the twentieth century—Bosnia. Although the United States remained on the sidelines for well over two years, its eventual entry tipped the balance and contributed powerfully to bringing the awful hostilities to their end.

This volume offers the reader a selection of primary source documents that relate to preparation for the war, life in the trenches, the treatment of African-Americans at the time, post-war struggles, conflict over the Fourteen Points, and several historians' interpretations of the war.
