An opinoin about this war
23 February 1916
I write you this letter to make you attend on my opinion about this awful war in which everyday hundreds of children die. Those generals know as good as I do that a whole lot of soldiers are too young and they don’t even care about it. Only in the Battle of Verdun died hundred-sixty-three-thousand people, and over two-hundred-sixty-thousand people are wounded. Those generals at the front don’t think about what happens with them, I mean when people come home some of them can’t work on the land anymore because they might miss limbs. and in the end, this war leads to nothing! It’s all just showing who is stronger and in the end both sides lost. They lost due to millions of deaths and billions of pounds of damage to land, houses, factory’s, etc. We have to stop this war as fast as possible because this is getting out of hand. You probably thought that this war was over fast with our machineguns and all the better defense we have, but that’s not the case, This war is all but that! Just make it stop.
