Dr. Olmstead edited Reconsidering Peace and Patriotism during the First World War, a volume that provides  a unique view of the movement for peace during the First World War, with authors from across Europe and the United States, each providing a distinctive cultural analysis of peace movements during the Great War.

James Gregory's book, The Story of One Marine, uses the letters and photos of Pvt. Thomas L. Stewart to tell the story of the soldier's experience in World War I. Stewart's letters home and photos detail his experiences from enlistment, through the battle of Aisne, Belleau Wood and the occupation of Germany.
