The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson
The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson
By Herbert Hoover
McGraw-Hill, 1958, 318 pp

In this informed and understanding memoir of Wilson's effort to secure a lasting peace, former President Hoover has made extensive use of his own files of the period. In his judgment, "President Wilson, in the memories of thinking men, is the only enduring leader of those statesmen who conducted the First World War and its aftermath of peacemaking."
