A historically informative catalog of war relics for sale. The introduction opens with "'War is Hell!' Those of us who participated in the World War will readily agree with this truth but, we will also admit a certain fascination, a ghastly twang to the War God which draws as a hugh magnet and places all other human sensations in the pale."
