 About the Book 

The great war is the one topic of the day, the one thing about which everyone speaks - the one thing, also, about which everyone thinks, and yet vast numbers of people are not thinking rightly about it. There are many who do not know what to think.MoreThe great war is the one topic of the day, the one thing about which everyone speaks - the one thing, also, about which everyone thinks, and yet vast numbers of people are not thinking rightly about it. There are many who do not know what to think. They are torn by a number of different ideas, and they find it hard to take a balanced view. On the one side there is often a rush of hatred called forth by awful barbarities, by unexampled cruelties, on the other side there is a strong feeling - a well- founded feeling - that war is an awful and insane thing, which never settles any point properly, because the side that wins in a war need not at all necessarily be always the right side. Providence, they say, is on the side of the biggest guns, and the old mediaeval idea that war was always decided by some higher power does not find invariable acceptance in the present day. People say: We know war is an evil and a wicked thing we know that peace is right and beautiful- so how can we fight with any heart? Yet, on the other hand, when such awful things are happening, is it not every mans duty to do what he can to stay the evil? So there is a general uncertainty of feeling, and many people hardly know what line they ought to take.
