Matt Crawford speaks with author Neil Lanctot about his book, The Approaching Storm. World War I is often buried in the shadows of WWII and yet while the U.S was a brief participant in the war it would change the course of our history and shape the 20th century. The book looks at this time period through the eyes of Teddy Roosevelt, a former President running for a third term, Woodrow Wilson, a current President running for a 2nd term and Jane Addams a pacifist whose story has been dimmed a bit by history. A deep and rich story of what led to WWI but also the tangential events, concerns and issues facing the American people at the time. This is a book that will transport you back to the era and immerse you in the debate of war while stirring your mind of the parallels we face today.
