Published in New Haven, Connecticut, this 1930 illustrated booklet is a testimony to the horrors of war. We now refer to World War I, but the author believed, as did most of the rest of the American public, that it would remain the only world war; that it was so devastating to so many that such a horror could never occur again. Photographs include "Australians dragging their Gun through a sea of mud," a cavalry charge into German machine guns, the wreck of a German "Gotha" plane brought down by British anti-aircraft guns, and a formation of sailors, all dressed in their whites, forming the words, "God and the Right."
