In the early years of the 20th century, the most famous Americans on the national stage were Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jane Addams: two presidents and a social reformer. The three were, if not always friends, then at least allies in the belief that the United States must take better care of its citizens. Yet in the increasingly contentious years that led to World War I, the views of these three titans splintered in how to deal with the conflict.This is the true story of three extraordinary leaders and how they agreed, quarrelled, and ultimately split apart as they debated the role that the United States should play in the world.
