Our Guns of August bundle features some of the leading thinkers of the 20th century writing about how the World Wars changed Western civilization and how war and intervention has shaped our society. Robert Nisbet argues that the role of the United States changed forever following World War I, and any concept of nation must include this historical development. Ludwig von Mises argued that the economic fallout of the Great War was as important a factor as foreign policy in the creation of a new monetary order. Discussion of the First World War leads into an explanation of the Second through the lens of seasoned journalist William Henry Chamberlin. And finally, The American Nation is a collection of primary sources that demonstrate America’s emergence as a major power on the world stage.

Books included in the bundle:
The American Nation Edited and with an Introduction by Bruce Frohnen
The Present Age By Robert Nisbet
America’s Second Crusade By William Henry Chamberlin
