Cry Havoc!
Cry Havoc!
By Beverley Nichols
Doubleday, 1933, 275 pp

Another noteworthy book which covers much the same ground as the preceding. The author, however, goes beyond the exposure of the evils of armament manufacture and presents an impassioned plea for pacifism. A vivid survey of the nature of modern war leads him to the conclusion that patriotism is an unmitigated evil, the propagation of which must be stopped at the source by the abolition of children's tin soldiers and the elimination of "drum and trumpet" history from the school curriculum.
