More about war

I think World War I is a better war for studying war than World War II because in World War I the choice between the two opposing sides was relatively indistinguishable: British imperialist capitalism versus German imperialist capitalism. In World War II, the choice was between extermination camps and so-called liberal democracy.

World War I produced World War ii by the victors in World War I imposing crushing reparations on the loser: Germany. This led to a vengeancocracy: the Nazis getting even. World War I, on the other hand, up until the cessation of hostilities on "the Eleventh hour of the Eleventh day of the Eleventh month" of 1918, however, was just plain potlatch. Whichever side won it would have been pretty much the same on the Western Front. Also, in World War I people were even more patriotic than in World War II. World War I was still the age of songs about young men asexually loving each other and Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori than in World War II, War is bad.
