By Richard Pifer

Examine Wisconsin’s response to World War I in author Richard L. Pifer’s new Society Press book The Great War Comes to Wisconsin. Often called "The War to End All Wars” or "The Great War,” World War I was the first "total war” of the twentieth century, a war so large that it engaged virtually the entire world. This book captures the homefront war experience: the political debates over war policy, the worry over loved ones fighting overseas, the countless everyday sacrifices, and the impact of a wartime hysteria that drove dissent underground. The book also includes letters and accounts of Wisconsin’s famed 32nd Division.
