In The World at War Georg Brandes has collected some of his essays on the war and the events leading up to it, written before and during the great conflict. From the prophetic Foreboding of 1881 to his Conclusion as to what must be the basis of lasting peace, Brandes fearlessly and with a burning sense of justice uncovers various aspects of the war, never allowing himself to be biased. The work covers all aspects and theaters of the war and is an excellent explanation of what happened and why.
Russell was orphaned as a child and was raised by his grandfather, John Russell, 1st Earl Russell. Educated at Cambridge University where he studied mathematics and philosophy, Russell published numerous works in these fields including his collaborative work with Alfred North Whitehead, Principia Mathematica (1910-1913) and his History of Western Philosophy (1945). A staunch pacifist, Russell was imprisoned in 1918 and again in 1961, the latter for civil disobedience regarding nuclear disarmament. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for 1950. Russell is considered one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th Century.
