"When is War the Answer? Woodrow Wilson and the Decision for War in 1917"
Presented by Professor Kurk Dorsey
One hundred years ago, President Woodrow Wilson faced a monumental dilemma about how to respond to the war in Europe, which had been raging for more than two years. In this illustrated talk, Kurk Dorsey, Professor of History at UNH and a specialist on US foreign policy, will describe how Wilson tried to make something good from the Great War, first by trying to mediate a peace without victory and then by choosing to intervene in the war on the Allied side. His decisions continue to reverberate today, as the United States tries to figure how to, among other things, make the world safe for democracy.
