Germany's Isolation: An Expostion of the Economic Causes of the War (Classic Reprint)
For some time after August 4, 1914, the writing of war literature was the fashion of the day. Perfectly respectable men and women, who in the ordinary walks of life would not harm the proverbial fly, suddenly plunged their unsuspecting pens shamelessly into the hearts of innocent inkwells and covered miles of snowy paper with sable wreck and ruin. Thundering polemics defending the cause of one or more belligerents and imploring perdition upon the opponent were hurled against suffering humanity. Peaceful citizens in public or private gatherings seemed to have forgotten their time-honored greetings of the day, and, instead, heaped such insults as 'Militarism,' 'Neutrality,' 'Kultur,' and 'Allies' upon each other. A huge conspiracy between authors, publishers, linotypes, and binderies was unearthed. America fairly reeled with all this horror.
Now that peace has been restored - at least on this side of the Atlantic - an examination into the status quo reveals the curious fact that almost all ammunition employed, from the smallest to the largest caliber, had been canned in American factories.
