Contains the author's 3+ page Preface to the American Edition. "Though it has hardly been detected by the many and hostile critics of this book, my main object in writing it was to establish the truth on a number of points; for a number of plain truths about the war had been obscured for the public, or rather never revealed to it, at all." The book covers the foundation of the Council, the plan for 1918, and the battle of St. Quentin. Wright had been Assistant Secretary to the Supreme War Council. He argues that the Allies nearly lost through lack of preparation and organization, and that it was Foch who saved the day.
