WAR - WHAT FOR?

George R Kirkpatrick

(Subject: Other Topics - Diverse Subjects…) An anti-war book originally published in Ohio in 1910 with many facts and figures about armament, weapons, and their effects. It rails against the practice of using young working class men as cannon-fodder while the wealthy who profit from war urge them to their "patriotic duty". An example of anti-capitalist attitudes in the early 20th century, it was a socialist agitator's contribution to the peace-war controversy which immediately preceded the outbreak of the European war in July, 1914. (Published: 1914) (Publisher: Private Publication) (Pagination: 352pp ills) (Condition: Fair. Boards worn, some pages marked.) UL-XXXXXX
