I can't believe I read this whole thing. Luckily it's short.

My review is based on the original publication of this book in 1958. It's a mixture of memoir of Herbert Hoover's own experience during the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 and a history of the event with the emphasis on Woodrow Wilson's role. There are long extracts of documents of various kinds in this book and quotes from published memoirs of other participants. I was surprised how much praise Hoover lavished on Wilson. Perhaps, his own experience of leaving the White House as an unpopular president for his unsuccessful grappling with Great Depression led Hoover to greatly sympathize with Wilson's ordeal of attempting to build a new world order that would replace the one that had led to so much death and destruction. This would not be the first book I would read on Hoover, Wilson, or Paris, but definitely would recommend for those want to read more deeply on on those topics.… (mais)

So Mr. Hoover disliked Franklin Roosevelt, believed that Roosevelt schemed to get us into World War II, and knew that Roosevelt had a lot of Communists and fellow travelers in his Administration. It seems to me that the judgment of history has overtaken the purpose of Hoover's unfinished "magnum opus". Surely the last two points are now pretty much commonplaces. Somehow it seems a little sad to think of Hoover diligently documenting all this for so long.
