The German War

The German War – Arthur Conan Doyle

This book contains nine essays upon different phases of the world-drama which has made Conan Doyle’s lifetime memorable. He himself thought them unworthy of republication, were it not that at such a time every smallest thing which may help to clear up a doubt, to elucidate the justice of the British cause, or to accentuate the desperate need of national effort, should be thrown into the scale.

III. The Devil’s Doctrine
IV. The Great German Plot
V. The “Contemptible Little Army”
VI. A Policy of Murder
VII. Madness
VIII. Great Britain and the Next War
IX. Afterthoughts
