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."
