Excerpt from The Uncivil War

NE of the main reasons why America has had such a hard time getting into this war, said my friend, thoughtfully, is that, when they started the present world con?ict, the Germans sprung on humanity an entirely new kind of war. And one so amazingly different from any war with which Americans had ever been connected that for a long time they didn't believe what they were seeing was really so - like the farmer who gazing upon a giraffe for the first time, waggled his head and remarked, weakly, 'go on! There ain't no such animal!

Up to August, he went on, war had been a very simple and elementary sort of affair, much like a fist fight, on a large scale. Two nations got sore at each other. And bango! They went at it, horse, foot and dragons; fist, feet and paving blocks; no holds barred and the devil take the undermost!
