  A century ago, a terrorist attack in Bosnia triggered a devastating world war that impacts us still today. Although the United States tried to remain neutral, ultimately it was dragged into the war and onto the world stage as a global power. This talk will explain the events between 1914 and 1917 that led to the deployment of more than 2-million American soldiers to France, Belgium, Italy and Russia, and changed our country forever. This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of the Library of America presented in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
