A top notch essay on the application of Catholic social ethics to the situation at the beginning of WW2. Includes an enlightening recap of the events leading to the period of the war just prior to the fall of France. Rare to read such an unequivocal rational voice on the subject of geopolitics. Whether or not you find yourself agreeing with him you will find the engagement with his overview thesis worth having. The narrator is a tad breezy here, but still quite listenable. Time well spent!

Fantastic writing - thorough and concise. Excellent narrator. Looking forward to more by this author.
This short book is very thought provoking. Anyone interested in the world wars will benefit from considering the main points raised, pertaining to the moral issues involved.
The reader manages the tone and voice of the book wonderfully. The reasoning of Belloc is clear and nearly unassailable. All Catholic citizens of a democracy or republic must read this book!
