not yet rated|write a review
When war broke out in Europe in 1914, nearly every combatant foresaw a short decisive conflict. Experience would soon prove, however, that this belief was sorely misplaced. Eventually, excessive economic dislocations would topple every authoritarian regime. Only the intervention of the United States would save the British and the French from collapse. This book traces the trilateral struggle between the Entente, the Central Powers, and the United States to determine the outcome of the war. Stubbs focuses on a few essential factors vital to understanding this three-way race: the acquisition of war materiel, food, human resources, and the movement of each.

"[A]n interesting and useful book examining the impact of material mobilization on World War 1....Stubbs's book has numerous strengths that commend it to both scholars of World War 1 and the general reader....[S]tubbs's view of European reaction to American power serves as a basis for future discussion while his statistical data certainly helpto explain the actions of coalitions."-The Journal of Military History
