The note warned librarians that there would be a question about circulating this book. It has now been barred from the mails by the Postal authorities as highly undesirable from a military standpoint. Libraries which have already purchased the book will, of course, withdraw it from circulation.It contains six artistically written episodes in which an Austrian officer pictures war as a sickening horror and an exploitation of the poor. Its sordidness being entirely unrelieved by any ideal of patriotism, it may tend to leave an impression of the utter unjustifiability of either side of the war.

During the war he book was banned by every country participating in the world war, and later again by Hitler. The translation from German is very good and the writing is painfully descriptive.
