How it was then the ambience the blind acceptance a spellbound acceptance of the warfare situation. It was as though this war had all been decided upon years before and everyone involved who was a someone in the scheme of things was going along for the ride. This person of his time was a part of it all, that was his place he accepted it . Seemingly the new technologies demanded this sacrifice to enable the development of humanities fascinating new toys and almost the whole populations of Western and Eastern Europe automatically complied.

The Mighty Royal Families of Europe of that time and their invariably unrepresentative and slavish puppet governments avidly promoted this soon to be slaughter of the innocents as a matter of course and made it happen because of their unquestioned presumption that their continued grip on european civilisation apparently required it. Could it be that they thought that they needed to militarise the whole of society so they could control it to make it a pecking order society one amenable to control?

So we become involved in the day to day events of a high ranking professional soldier writing regularly to his wife about his war. His mixed observatiuons are somehow detached because he lived in two different environments he visited the trenches and the army headquarters as a matter of course. His identification with the common soldier was essentially formal and entirely typical of his time but he identified with the members of his own class very enthusiastically.
