WE WERE once assured that the World War was to be the last war, the war to end war. In the years since the Armistice we have witnessed an unprecedented flood of opinion on the causes of war and a determined effort to eradicate them. Everyone has a formula for preventing, or at least for minimizing, the possibility of war. The prevention of another world conflict, judging by the publicity it has received, is the outstanding problem of the century. We of the military service have a very special interest in that problem since in a way we are devoting our lives to its solution.
