Program Description

“Woodrow Wilson’s Presidency fell in the period when the old world came apart. He moved the U. S. from a haughty self righteous isolationism into the intervention that brought victory to the Allies. He then worked desperately to establish a League of Nations as the internationally respected force to prevent wars that wore now too all encompassing to be permitted. No country could again ‘have its little war in peace’. But the combination of personal frailties, crippling illness and, above all, the implacable unwillingness to modify unrestrained sovereignty, defeated the League and sowed the seeds for the wars of the future.”
