From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-- Jantzen's lively work--adapted from his adult title (Knopf, 1972; o.p.)--has as its underlying theme that the United States doesn't enter into war without first couching its reasons in idealistic, moralistic terms and slogans that inevitably lead to postwar disillusionment and reactionary sentiment. Seemingly, there is an innate American distaste for openly admitting to engaging in traditional power politics and warfare for the sake of furthering our nation's interests. Jantzen devotes relatively little attention to American military exploits, examining instead peripheral matters (race relations, labor problems, socialism, etc.) that illustrate what the public was doing, thinking, and saying before, during, and after "Mr. Wilson's War." By making liberal use of appropriate quotations from speeches, newspaper articles, editorials, letters, diaries, poems, etc., he entertains, informs, and enables readers to draw their own conclusions concerning the wisdom of theU. S.'s entry into this war. Such a judgment, according to Jantzen, will make all of us "better able to make similar judgments when . . . a threatening situation abroad calls for an American response." --David A. Lindsey, Lakewood Junior/Senior High School, WA
