About this item

As the nation looks back on World War I with the perspective of one hundred years, the North Carolina Office of Archives and History remembers the "Great War," the "war to end all wars," the conflict that brought the world into the modern age. A few European landmarks of the war--the Hindenburg Line, Argonne Forest, Belleau Wood--bore the imprint of Tar Heel boots. Yet, the impact of the war was felt just as certainly at home, in Asheville neighborhoods, on Cumberland County training fields, at Wilmington shipyards. 

With stunning images and imaginative design elements, Jessica A. Bandel's North Carolina and the Great War, 1914-1918 brings the World War I story to modern readers. Showcasing the holdings of the North Carolina Museum of History supplemented by artifacts selected from other depositories and loaned by private collectors, Bandel has prepared a visually compelling and comprehensive new study of the war. The heavily illustrated, full-color, 160-page book includes narrative depictions of nurse Madelon Hancock, aviator Kiffin Rockwell, and Army conductor James Tim Brynn, among many others. Capsule vignettes and sidebars open up the past for readers young and old.
