Come on In, America: The United States in World War I - Linda Barrett Osborne

Staff Pick

After three years of maintaining our isolationist resistance to entering World War I, in 1917 we heeded the call to Come On In, America (Abrams, $17.95). Richly detailed with period photographs, news articles, and propaganda posters, Linda Barrett Osborne’s broad but deep examination of America’s participation in the Great War makes a compelling case for why this epoch deserves more attention from the young history lover in your house. Osborne meticulously documents how the first modern war changed America’s position in the world and highlighted government hypocrisy and societal injustice on the home front. Ages 11-14.
