5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding personal polemic, 18 Aug. 2012
G. Slade (Leuven, Belgium) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Howard Zinn's personal experience as a soldier lends considerable weight to this very personal essay on the waging of war and the need to work for peace. He highlights the apparent randomness and lack of purpose (military and otherwise) of the destruction wrought during the so-called "Good War" and continues to be wrought in present wars. He presents a picture of war as "humanity gone mad" that is as relevant today as it was 70 years ago.

Obviously, this book presents its ideas from the perspective of the political left, but its human story transcends political affiliation. I recommend "The Bomb" to anyone who wants a personal perspective on the personal politics of war and how to stop it...or better yet, avoid it all together!
