World War I
The Rest of the Story and How It Affects You Today
1870 to 1935, Part One of a two-part series about the World Wars
by Richard J. Maybury
The first of Richard Maybury's two books on the World Wars focuses on the ideas and events of the First World War and how they affect us today.
Those ideas and events are today the reasons why the U.S. Government gets into so many wars in far corners of the globe.
"In a very real sense," says Mr. Maybury, "the explosion of the battleship Main in Havana Harbor in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction — a domino effect. The Spanish-American War in 1898 led to World War I, then World War II, and America's subsequent wars. And the dominoes continue to fall." ... Indian Wars, Spanish-American War, Conquest of Philippines, China Boxer War, Columbia-Panama Incursion, Latin American Intervention, World War I, World War II ...and much more. The dominoes abound.
