Sir Norman Angell , The Great Illusion


This is Steven Camley's interpretation of the lead up to World War One.
It refers to a 1913 text by Norman Angell, in which he argues that nations understood that war was pointless and therefore unlikely to happen:
"...military power is socially and economically futile, and can have no relation to the prosperity of the people exercising it; that it is impossible for one nation to seize by force the wealth or trade of another - to enrich itself by subjugating, or imposing its will by force on another; that in short, war, even when victorious, can no longer achieve those aims for which people strive..."
An excerpt from The Great Illusion by Norman Angell.
