What is war, and how does it relate to the political thought that circulates through societies? In this essay, historian G. Philip Crean IV seeks to explore the connections of the two by studying the example of the First World War-a key turning point in world history and a culmination of thought, sentiment, ideas, and aggressions in the form of one of the greatest wars that man has ever known. This work seeks to define the intersections of political thought and war in the First World War: political philosophy was a cause and driving force behind the war.
