The Second World War looms large in our cultural consciousness. The unambiguous rightness of the cause. The countless books and movies. The familiar family stories and firsthand accounts of surviving veterans.

Not so the First.

We know less, relate less, think less about World War I. Its veterans are gone. Its cause was complex and its alliances confusing. Its senseless carnage (17 million civilian and military dead) is painful to revisit.

It’s time to remember

April 6 marks the 100th anniversary of this country’s entry into The Great War, as it was called at the time. Though largely forgotten, New Jersey’s role in the war—before, during, and after official U.S. participation—was both critical and fascinating. Events are planned throughout the state to tell the story—including a major exhibit at the Eden Woolley House. More.

Monmouth County Historian Randy Gabrielan covers the highlights of his latest book.
