John Chambers' wide-ranging scholarship, which includes studies of the Progressive era, the peace movement, United States foreign relations, conscientious objectors, the Army Corps of Engineers, the draft—and, most recently, the Office of Strategic Services—has attracted a diverse range of students and admirers. This volume, focusing on the Second World War, brings together chapters from many of those whom John has mentored and befriended over the years. To varying degrees, each contributor's interests—and, therefore, the work that follows—have been shaped by their relationship with John Chambers and by their study of his eclectic, approachable, and penetrating scholarship. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
