Woodrow Wilson's "Peace Without Victory" Address January 22, 1917 A Continuity Of Thought
Wilson remained true to his idealistic beliefs even during the war. In his four major addresses from January to December 1918, Wilson clarified and redefined the major points made in this "Peace Without Victory" speech. He maintained that the United States was not motivated by greedy ends, but rather, it was interested in the "peace of the world." Wilson's firm devotion to principle was a significant factor in the creation of the Treaty of Versailles. The "Peace Without Victory" speech was an exemplary distillation of Wilson's ideas on international relationships and on America's role as a peacemaker.
