Cicero defined the war as the affirmation by force. Two thousand years later and the next day of the deadliest century in its history, humanity can, more than ever, make it disappear. For this reason, it is necessary to understand what are all its mechanisms, causes, effects and consequences. Knowing the war is the first step towards peace.
This book explains in a synthetic way and by means of brief historical reminders what is the war, as well as all the means deployed to avoid it.
