Abstract

This edited volume examines the YMCA’s efforts during the World Wars of the twentieth century. These efforts proved to be an immense source of support for soldiers and civilians around the world. Joining forces with governments, other civic organizations, and individuals, the YMCA deployed hundreds of thousands of its secretaries to support suffering civilians and ease soldiers’ wartime hardships. However, its support had a significant byproduct. For every person it befriended, the Y made an enemy with an opposing party, its patrons, its sponsor or all three. [WorldCat]
