Overview

In this collection of articles written before, during, and just after World War I, G. K. Chesterton described what had gone wrong with Germany and warns that, if the nation is not forced to change, this war will followed by another and still more horrible war. He criticizes internationalists, pacifists and militarists and wants peace maintained by an anti-German alliance similar to NATO. He harshly criticizes Teutonism, a then-fashionable form of racism that would mutate into Nazism, making him one of Hitler's first foes. Appendices have articles on war by Thomas Aquinas, Winston Churchill, Norman Angell, Bernard Shaw, Bertrand Russell, Mahatma Gandhi, and H. G. Wells.
