President Woodrow Wilson famously rallied the USA to go into international warfare I via announcing the state had an obligation to make “the international secure for democracy.” yet as historian Jim Powell demonstrates during this surprising reappraisal, Wilson truly made a terrible blunder via committing the U.S. to struggle. faraway from making the area secure for democracy, America’s access into the struggle opened the door to murderous tyrants and Communist rulers. No different president has had a hand—however unintentional—in loads destruction. That’s why, Powell announces, “Wilson without doubt ranks because the worst president in American history.”
Wilson’s War unearths the scary outcomes of our twenty-eighth president’s fateful determination to go into the fray in Europe. It ended in thousands of extra casualties in a warfare that had floor to a stalemate. or even extra worrying have been the long term consequences—consequences that performed out good after Wilson’s demise.

Jim Powell offers a gorgeous reminder that we should always concentration much less on a president’s high-minded beliefs and stable intentions than at the effects of his actions.
