The Great Railroad War: United States Railway Operations during World War I

by Rudolph L. Daniels, Ph.D.

MSRP TBA

This book delves into the often unrecognized and underappreciated history of United States rail operations during and immediately following World War I. Daniels’ expertly-written academic history sheds light on the profound impact that American railroads and railroaders had on the war effort. The book covers the unpreparedness of the railroads for an unprecedented war, the 1918 government takeover to ensure operating efficiency, and the relinquishment of the railroads and groundbreaking Transportation Act of 1920. Covering more than just the history, Daniels discusses the operational details of United States rail shipments both at home and abroad, and how these operations interplayed and overlapped with military operations in France and Russia.
