Margaret MacMillan, a renowned historian looks at war. Why choose war? What does it say about us?
From the beginning, there has been war and peace. Sometimes at the same time. Everything we know and have comes from war. It brings out the worst in us and challenges our beliefs and what we hold dear.
This is a look at war from all sides. Is it in our very nature to be at war? How do we decide to go to war?
We all know that war shapes politics, values and can be destructive so why do we humans keep planning, strategizing, and declaring war? And why is it mainly men?
Some very good history here along with a lot to think about.
