Germany's War Mania
Excerpt from Germany's War Mania: The Teutonic Point of View as Officially Stated by Her LeadersIn presenting this book to the public the publishers believe that it should Be prefaced by an adequate expression of the British point of view as opposed To the German gospel of blood and iron. No more fitting epitome of the British attitude could be found than a pronouncement made by the Right Hon. Viscount Bryce in a recently published pamphlet.For this statement by the eminent historian and Publicist is a sane and Comprehensive summary of the ideals of government and respect for international covenants which Animate the British nation. Lord Bryce has summarized the conflicting points Of View as follows:The present war has had some unexpected consequences. It has called the attention of the world outside Germany to some amazing doctrines proclaimed there, which strike at the root of all international morality, as well as of all international law, and which threaten a return to the primitive savagery when every tribe was wont to plunder and massacre its neighbours.These doctrines may be found set forth in the widely-circulated book of General von Bernhardi, entitled "Germany and the Next War," published in 1911, and professing to be mainly based on the teachings of the famous professor of history, Heinrich von Treitschke.To readers in other countries, and, I trust, to most readers in Germany also, they will appear to be an outburst of militarism run mad, the product of a brain intoxicated by the love of war and by a super-heated national self-consciousness.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
