On Mar 24, 2016, Anonymous said:

A scathing indictment of war in Twain's inimitable satirical style. He refused to let this be published during his lifetime for fear of offending his religious family members, but never expected it would take so long to see the light of day. A must-read and an essential for Twain collectors.
