Remembrance Day

‘Eight to ten million soldiers will strangle one another, and in the process will eat all Europe more bare than any swarm of locusts. The devastation of  the Thirty Years War, comprised into three or four years and extended over the whole continent: famine, pestilence, general barbarisation of armies and peoples alike through extreme want.’- Friedrich Engels, 1887. (Tristram Hunt, 2010, The Frock-Coated Communist, London, Penguin, p.347).
