The University of North Dakota felt the Great War in distinctive ways. Members of the university community fought (and died) in Europe, worked in the domestic war effort, challenged the wisdom of the war, and reflected on a more peaceful future.
The nine articles reprinted in this slim volume originated in the University of North Dakota’s little magazine, North Dakota Quarterly. They capture the range of attitudes, experiences, and engagements with the First World War on campus and beyond. These articles demonstrate how far-flung conflicts can have a direct impact on our community, and also remind us of local costs and opportunities of our global citizenship.
