pp. [vi], 52. First printing. "War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious." - p. 1. Butler [1881-1940] knew his subject intimately, having served in numerous military actions around the world while coming to his conclusion. He died five years after publication as the most decorated Marine in U.S. history until that time, having received not one but two Congressional Medals of Honor. "Probably the most concise indictment of non-defensive warfare ever written." - Robert H. Weems. Half-inch chip from bottom corner of page one. Faint library writing to base of backstrip. Faint one-inch diameter moisture mark at black titling upon front board. Library blind stamp atop title page, otherwise clean and unmarked with moderate wear to publisher's red buckram. Binding intact. Backstrip professionally restored. New endpapers. Dust jacket not included. [Weems, "A Populist Bibliography", p.16]. 7.75 x 5.25 inches.
