    1. An interesting take on Woodrow Wilson and the consequences of WWI. The basic premise is that Wilson entered the First World War for no solid reason. The author states that the United States was under no threat from Germany and Wilson took the U.S. Into the conflict because he wanted to practice politics and nation building at the highest levels with the fourteen points. That being said, I've read a bio of mr Wilson and visited his museum in Staunton,Virginia. I've also read numerous books on the [...]


    2. Wilson's War is an interesting read, but Powell does not make a very compelling argument for his main thesis that “No other U.S. president has had a hand – however unintentional – in so much destruction. Wilson surely ranks as the worst president in American History.” Powell’s book is significantly different from other more traditional books about U.S. presidencies which highlight facts about the lives of the men in office. Wilson’s War only briefly talks about President Wilson’s p [...]


    3. I have only read 53 pages of this book and I don't thing I can get any farther. It is a Neo-Conservative screed. Let me get this straight: in the prologue and chapter one the author claims all the world’s present problems are a direct result of Woodrow Wilson, a "progressive" the author points out, because he took us into World War One. World War One occurred because of Napoleon’s ravaging of the European country side. World War One marked the end of a glorious era of peace that began after [...]


    4. The single concept that this book drives home is that entangling alliances between nations have dire short term and long term consequences. The often overlooked reality that manipulation of markets by government and empire building (nation building) always lead to conflict are points that are well presented in this book. Had Russia, Germany, Britain, France and other nations not aligned themselves and committed themselves to the defense of each other, made trade agreements in order to bolster th [...]


    5. Woodrow Wilson is a much more controversial figure than he was when I was in high school. In history class, I learned he was among the first progressives in America, bringing about needed reforms to reign in the industrial age robber barons, protect consumers, and solidify the country's place as a world power. That portrayal was false, as this book confirms. While Wilson was indeed a leading progressive, his reforms accomplished little domestically and his foreign policy was an abysmal failure. [...]


    6. When the history of the West is written, World War I may be seen as the beginning of its end. The more one studies history, the more one becomes aware of the magnitude of this tragedy. The repercussions of it that have yet to finally play themselves out. Alternative histories are necessarily, and at best, only informed speculation, but had the United States not intervened, what was essentially a European civil war would have been worked out by the Europeans. A reasonable argument can be made tha [...]


    7. Utter garbage. This is revisionist history at best, and a neo-conservative manifesto at worst. From the first few pages, I knew I was going to disagree with the author, but I was still excited to learn something, and to even read about a viewpoint that I had maybe not considered. This was not meant to be; it quickly grew apparent - I'm talking about the first few dozen pages - that every fact in Powell's book was covered in a thick, oily sheen of political agenda. Wilson's War contains disingenu [...]


    8. As much as I am critical of Wilson's policies, I find the author's accusations to be too much. Woodrow Wilson becomes solely responsible almost for the Second World War, rather than being a key architect in the new world order that would fail to prevent it. The author does a disservice to his objective by marginalizing the failures of others within the Post-Versailles system that could have contained Hitler and preserved the Weimar Republic. Further more, he blames "Wilsonianism" for plenty of o [...]


    9. 'We often hear of the unintended consequences of government intervention into the economy. For example, attempts to lower the price of milk by means of price controls will lead to shortages of milk. In Wilson’s War, Jim Powell is at pains to demonstrate that foreign intervention, too, has its unintended consequences—hence his book’s provocative subtitle.'Read the full review, "Making the World Safe - Again," on our website:theamericanconservative


    10. Fantastic look at the devastating results of Wilson's interventionist strategy and subsequent entrance into the bloody and stalemated European War. Consequences not the least of which would be the rise of three of the most deadly and wicked dictators the world has ever known. One would think that current Presidents would learn from this tragic foreign policy. Instead, many chose to repeat history and involve us in foregin wars like Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq. Long live Wilsonian foreign policy!


    11. Interesting Quote:"None of the belligerents [in WWI] had clean hands, so it just wasn't possible to make a credible moral case for American intervention. If Wilson backed the British, French, and Belgians, he would have enabled them to seek vengeance against the Germans and protect their empiresIf Wilson backed the Germans, he would have enabled them to build an empire and seek vengeance against their adversaries." -Jim Powell, Wilson's War


    12. This is a good book. The author makes a good argument that Hitler and Lenin would have never come to power if Wilson didn't make the decision to enter into World War 1. Pretty big mistake if you ask me. The whole 20th century would have been much different.


    13. I found this book very informative. I'm not sure that I agree with everything that author says. I appreciate that facts presented. I did have a hard time following some of it, as he skipped around mentioning timelines: they were not consecutive.
