About

Overview

One of the effects of World War I was prosperity in the United States in the 1920s. However, by the end of that decade, the US plummeted into a severe depression. The Great Depression inspired events and sentiments that would be carried into the next great conflict, World War II. This book examines the causes and effects of the Great Depression, key players during the era, and what implications this era of history had on events and conflicts in future generations.
