Woodrow Wilson’s presidency coincided with the First World War (the worst catastrophic event to descend on Europe since the Black Death) and the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Both these seminal events had far reaching  consequences that still haunt our world today. The First World War propelled a  sleeping industrial giant out of the shadows where it had languished since the end  of the Civil War onto the world stage and elevated Woodrow Wilson to a world  statesman and placed him firmly in the pantheon of outstanding 20th-century American presidents.  

Wilson’s call to Congress in the Spring of 1917 to  

declare war against Germany ultimately changed  

the course of the war – a war which Great Britain  

and France and their allies could well have lost without the intervention of the United States. 

By inheritance Woodrow Wilson was from Scottish  

and Irish stock. His mother was born in Carlisle in  

north-west England. Before he became the 28th  

president of the United States, Wilson spent five  

summers in Britain – mainly in the Lake District  

which he regarded as his second home. Wilson was 

a profoundly emotional man, an incurable 

romantic , an idealist. Reading William Wordsworth’s The Farewell would bring tears to his eyes. Wilson was twice married and had three daughters by his first wife who died aged 54. He also had a long-standing (possibly  romantic) friendship with a married woman which brought him close to political  disaster.  

This book illuminates Wilson’s Anglophilia, his time spent in Britain, his two  marriages, his academic and political achievements and failures, his decision to  support Britain and France and their allies in the First World War, and his role in  (a) establishing the League of Nations (the forerunner of the United Nations) and  (b) the main architect in reshaping the world after the demise of four empires in the  wake of the First World War.
