A Soldier for Peace
"Will War Ever End" is a slim volume with a wealth of information and history on how the powerful use peaceful actions can overcome conflicts, and also shows us examples of how human nature, contrary to the theories that insist people are intrinsically violent, is actually driven by needs of peace and prosperity for their family and community, and is in opposition to war.
Waging peace not only has the power to solve a current crisis, but also to change the course of human events forever, and as author Paul Chappell writes in his "Waging Peace" section, "Together, we can take human civilization to new heights by ending the injustice of war that has been with us for far too long."
And Captain Paul Chappell knows about war. Having graduated from West Point and served in Iraq, he has seen it first hand, and we get the wisdom of his knowledge. As well as being a superb writer, Chappell is a charismatic, excellent speaker. He is surely destined to have a huge impact in the world by bringing his vision of peace to our chaotic planet, that so desperately needs voices of sanity to prevail.
"Will War Ever End" has a final chapter that includes passages from others who have served in the military and have changed history with their ideas, from General Dwight D. Eisenhower to Mahatma Gandhi (who was a veteran of the Boer and Zulu wars). It is gratifying to know that Captain Chappell's royalties for this book will be donated to organizations that support war veterans.
