Mostly covers World War I Apr 5, 2004
This is Volume 30 of the "Collected Works". Chesterton's editorials mainly cover political, social, historical, cultural and philosophical topics relating to World War I. As always, GK's insights are fascinating. Avowedly anti-Prussian, he lambastes the Germans at every turn. The more Chesterton writes about Germany, the easier it is to understand how Nazism and its horrors came about. Besides Germany, GK also deals extensively with happening in England, France, and the United States. All in all, a very relevant volume in this superb series!
