Omtale: Americans and the Wars of the Twentieth Century
Jenel Virden outlines the causes, courses and consequences of the major wars of the Twentieth century in American history, examining how the US became involved, how the wars were fought; and what the domestic consequences were. Applying 'just war theory', Virden discusses the foreign policy as well as civil liberty implications of American involvement in the First World War, Second World War, Korean War and Vietnam War. An epilogue on the Iraq War brings the book right up-to-date.
