Quote from my reading: Future of the Planet Earth

“In our new age of terrifying, lethal gadgets, which supplanted so swiftly the old one, the first great aggressive war, if it should come…will not last long and none will ever follow it. There will be no conquerors and no conquests, but only the charred bones of the dead on an uninhabited planet.

Conclusion to the Foreword of William L Shirer’s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, p. xii.
