How May We Win the Peace?

by V.T. Thayer - 1942

A RECENT NEWS DISPATCH FROM ONE of those remote points in the Pacific now used as a mobilizing center for American troops contrasts the general bearing and attitude of the A.E.F. in 1942 with that of 1917. According to this correspondent the boys of 42 are on the whole a quieter and more modest group than were those of 1917. They are less given to boasting and demonstration but no less dedicated to the task confronting them. They are more mature and more intelligently aware of the issues for which they are preparing to lay down their lives. They have learned in their schools that war is wasteful and a species of group insanity; but since they can recognize no alternative to war as a means for checkmating the designs of the totalitarian nations, they are resolved to see it through even to the bitter end.
