The Legacy of Woodrow Wilson : American War Aims in World War I Hardback
Contrary to popular belief, Woodrow Wilson coordinated foreign and defense policies.
Wilson viewed Imperial Germany as a threat to U.S. national security and acted accordingly. His urgent desire to mediate an end to World War I was driven by geo-political concerns.
Forced into the war by tertiary issues, he decided to throw a great deal of weight upon the scale by intervening decisively in the Great War in order to dominate the postwar peace conference.
There he intended to dictate a scientific peace and to create a League of Nations to insure collective security.
