Attached is one of the book reviews from 1925 that covered the presidential biography, Woodrow Wilson: the Man, his Times and his Task by William Allen White (1868 – 1944, pictured above):
"Woodrow Wilson, the administrator, the head of the Army and Navy, put into battle millions of men, and treasure beyond the dream of avarice. During the nineteen months of the war, those men and that treasure, hurtling out of the catapult of our physical fortress, crashed into the German forces terrifyingly...Wilson meeting force with force was Ajax hurtling thunderbolts."
"Whether or not Woodrow Wilson will live as a world figure depends not so much upon what work he has done as upon what the chance of time and circumstance will do with his work. He must live or die in world fame bound upon the League of Nations. If that stands he may tower beside it...If the League crumbles, then Wilson will become one of the host of good men who spent their zeal striving for futile things."
