In " The World at War" Georg Brandes has collected some of his essays on the war and the events leading up to it, written before and during the great conflict. From the prophetic " Foreboding " of 1881 to his " Conclusion " as to what must be the basis of lasting peace, Brandes fearlessly and with a burning sense of justice uncovers various aspects of the war, never allowing himself to be biased.
In liis letter to Clemenceau may be found the key to his attitude:
" But I would confess to you that I have a very high regard for the writer's calling. If he is not Truth's consecrated priest he is only fit to be thrown on the scrap heap."
