Marian Moser Jones has a guest post at the JHU Press where she takes a different approach to commemorating the start of the first World War. She focusses instead on the organizations created by the American war effort and how it ushered "in new era of American "humanitarianism." Chiefly, during the American Red Cross went from a small disaster relief organization to a "sprawling behemoth with humanitarian activities in 25 countries." Additionally, the Red Cross also ushered American women into the War at "unprecedented" levels.
