America in War and Peace

Register online or call 724.941.9430 #1.

Michael Neiberg returns to the library to present a program as part of Peters Township Public Library Great War commemorative programs. Dr. Neiberg’s presentation is the concluding event hosted by our library as part of the World War I and America project presented by Library of America in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and the National World War I Museum and Memorial, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This talk examines the role of the United States in winning the war and shaping the postwar peace. Military strategy and postwar diplomacy were intimately linked, as President Woodrow Wilson sought a distinct, independent American contribution to victory in order to ensure him a guiding role in the peace conference. Wilson’s views on the postwar peace met with tremendous resistance, both from his European allies and from his fellow Americans. Echoes of that debate still resonate with us today as America again debates its place in the world. 

Michael Neiberg has a Ph.D. in History from Carnegie Mellon University and is the inaugural Chair of War Studies in the Department of National Security and Strategy at the United States Army War College. His published work specializes on the First and Second World Wars, notably the American and French experiences.
