    An interesting and surprising little book This small book covers a lot of territory. It starts with a discussion of how technology dramatically changed war fare. Think about it. Before WWI there were no tanks, airplanes, machine guns and advanced artillery. They changed how wars were fought and how wars affected soldiers and civilians alike. He then goes on to discussions about whether England and Germany should have been friends and the chance that a defeated Germany would come back and wreak ha An interesting and surprising little book This small book covers a lot of territory. It starts with a discussion of how technology dramatically changed war fare. Think about it. Before WWI there were no tanks, airplanes, machine guns and advanced artillery. They changed how wars were fought and how wars affected soldiers and civilians alike. He then goes on to discussions about whether England and Germany should have been friends and the chance that a defeated Germany would come back and wreak havoc on England and France (pretty insightful for 1916). He talks about socialism quite a bit, since he was a died in the wall socialist. And he has an interesting take on America’s indifference toward what was at the time a strictly European war. Unless you are a WWI scholar, there are some interesting and surprising things here. Ps don’t get the audio book th woman reader just doesn’t seem right for the part. Read the kindle book. It’s a quick read

    This collection of essays Wells wrote during the first two years of the war is fine but never terrific. It's more of a curiosity than a compelling piece of writing. The chapters on aerial photography and tanks are pretty good; others are replete with allusions to figures of the time that I couldn't catch. Wells argues that the only way in which wars will be eliminated is for all of the world's ten thousand religions to merge into one grand one, since people fight for God more enthusiastically th This collection of essays Wells wrote during the first two years of the war is fine but never terrific.

Not much to recommend here.

    Wells gives his commentary on World War II. The connections are difficult to follow at times. This is a series of disjointed essays that have a general theme of World War II. Wells goes off on tangents about religion, leaders and politics. Some of these insights are intriguing but the vast majority of this work is a bit confusing.

    Starts off as a biased bit of patriotic propaganda in the form of a report from the Western front as a journalist sent on a tour. Then it degenerates into the same ideas put forward in his " What is Coming? A Forecast of Things after the War". Wells, believes in the goodness of government and the bigger the government the better, the problems of man can be solved by world government and a more powerful bureaucracy.
