This book is a detailed analysis of war within which Wells explores why the Second World War was being fought, what would happen when it ended, what aims should be set, and the possibility of a future where humanity doesn't destroy itself through war. A fascinating and thought-provoking treatise, "The Common Sense of War and Peace" will appeal to those with an interest in WWII and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of H. G. Wells work. Contents include: "Grown Men Do Not Need Leaders", "Can Any Peace Be Made Now?", "What Are We Fighting For?", "Only World Revolution Can End War", "The Blue Swastika and the Religion of the Rentier", "The Triple Choice", "What Federation Means And May Mean", "War in the Air and After", "The Puerility of Current Federal Union Schemes", "The Provisional Declaration of Rights", et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1940.
