Our glorious heritage
Our glorious heritage
compiled by Charles Seddon Evans ; introduction by the very Reverend H.C. Beeching., Summary: Introduction: "War, therefore, supplies two opportunities to the poet: he can articulate voice to the love of country and the love of freedom and any other special idea that animates either combatant, such as respect for a nation's pledged word or the protection of the weak against the strong; and he can also celebrate the heroic exploits of armies and individuals which every war calls forth.", From Shaw Bibliography: Introduction in Description. The German invasion of Belgium in the first week of the war is cited by English writers, historians, and politicians as the precipitating cause of England's entry into the war, and would be used thereafter to justify the moral authority of the Entente. Even Bertrand Russell would speak of the "wrong" inflicted on Belgium. (But cf. Robert Graves, "Good-bye to All That," rev. ed. [Garden City: Doubleday, 1957], Chapter XVII, esp. 182ff.)
