Praise For Come On In, America: The United States in World War I

"A wide-ranging exploration of World War I and how it changed the United States forever."

— Kirkus

"Osborne effectively juxtaposes issues such as censorship, propaganda, prejudice, discrimination, and violence that arose in the United States against the democratic ideals for which U.S. troops went to war...an informative book that is worthy of shelf space in all high school history collections."

— School Library Journal

"This book tells the story of the Great War, but, more centrally, offers a lesson in how the U.S. redefined itself both globally and at home."

— Booklist
