Face to Face with Kaiserism (WWI Centenary Series)

James W Gerard

In some measure this book is a continuation of MY FOUR YEARS IN GERMANY, the narrative here being carried up to the time of my return home, with some observations on the situation I have found in the United States. What I want especially to impress upon the people of the United States is that we are at war because Germany invaded the United States-an invasion insidiously conceived and vigorously prosecuted for years before hostilities began-that this war is our war-that the sanctity of American freedom and of the American home depend upon what we do NOW. James W. Gerard (Late U.S. Ambassador to the German Imperial Court) This book is part of the World War One Centenary series creating, collating and reprinting new and old works of poetry, fiction, autobiography and analysis. The series forms a commemorative tribute to mark the passing of one of the worlds bloodiest wars, offering new perspectives on this tragic yet fascinating period of human history. Each publication also includes brand new introductory essays and a timeline to help the reader place the work in its historical context.
