In this volume, Daniels tells how Wilson, having fought against war with monumental patience, finally led this country into world conflict. He proved himself a militant fighter and strategist, and when victory came he believed that it had made possible a warless world. Wilson's fight for the League of Nations is vigorously told, as is the deep damnation of its defeat.

Originally published in 1946.
