[Item #80746] Why We Fought. C. HARTLEY GRATTAN.

Why We Fought

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1969. First Thus. Revised and Reprinted edition of the 1929 first edition. Octavo. 21.5cm. Publisher's deep blue cloth titled in gilt to spine and front board. 453pp. Clean and strong, minor shelfwear to extremities, a very good copy indeed. Internally clean, a little dusty around the page edges. An erudite and still extremely relevant examination of the reasons and methods by which the US entered WW1 and then the methodology through which it was eventually propelled towards WW2, the afterword was contributed by Hartley Grattan for this revised edition, allowing him a degree of 20/20 hindsight regarding US militarisation and the consequences of widespread propaganda upon a nation that was, at the time, 4 years deep into the disastrous mess of the Vietnam War.
