Letter to an English propaganda poet World War 1

Dear Ms. Pope


Why do you want us to fight in a war against the Germans Ms. Pope? This war started because a man was assassinated thousands of miles away. Why should I go fight in a war and get shot when I don’t know the name of the man who was assassinated. What was the assassin’s name because I do not know?


Sincerely,

A citizen of England
