From the first paragraph of Peace:

"We shall march to victory over the graves of our fallen comrades." Those comrades who fell in the war that was to end war, that peace might prevail on the face of the earth forever after. These were the promises that were made--and which have not been kept. The Treaty of Verswailles, [sic] the Peace Treaty, conceived in fear and hatred, born of jealousy and stupidity, has laid the scene for a future conflict whose ferocity and waste will complete what the Great War began. We march inevitably to our doom over the bodies of our dead. For what? Is it to be another war to end war? Must we fight until we all find peace--in the grave?    [Book ID # 1143]
