about

This book is a narrative history which describes how the Ohio National Guard survived and even prospered as part of the American military establishment during a period characterized by anti-military sentiments. From 1919 to 1940, while the United States' Regular Army was so starved for funds that it barely remained a serious fighting force, the Ohio National Guard, and other states' Guard organizations, was relatively well funded; the Ohio National Guard was deemed worthy of public support because it, unlike the Regular Army, was staffed by citizen soldiers and thus was never perceived as a threat to the state. This book provides a comprehensive picture of the National Guard during these years and is valuable to anyone interested in United States military history.

Daugherty is especially judicious in his balanced yet accurate conclusions on the Guards's role in labor unrest.
