In this book, Richard Maybury presents an idea-based explanation of the First World War. He explains how the explosion of the battleship Maine in 1898 was the beginning of a chain reaction that continues even today.
Writing in the episitatory style of other "Uncle Eric" books, Richard Maybury breaks down the influences, causes, and effects of World War I in easily digestable letters. Looking at neutrality, fascism, The "Old War" cycle of wars, manifest destiny, Switzerland's example, "The White Man's Burden" and other elements that led to the U.S. government's involvement, Maybury presents a radically different view of a war that's been so romanticized and lauded by Hollywood and History.
