The Great War Part 110, September 23rd 1916

THE BEARING OF HISTORY ON THE WAR is amply demonstrated in the 1 5 -Volume“ HARMSWORTH HISTORY OF THE WORLD” Read the following glowing sentences written by MR. HORATIO BOTTOMLEY in a page description of the“ Harmsworth History of the World ”that recently appeared in “John Bull.” “Reading these volumes you will find that time after time in the history of mankind the forces of evil have seemed to overwhelm and destroy the fruits of centuries of progress. W e have had our Alexanders and our A ttilas our Tam erlanes and our Napoleons our Goths and Vandals before whose ravages civilisation emerged bleeding and bruised to struggle again to convalescence and new life just as to-day w e have a world strife that seems to shake the stars and makes us almost doubt the power of God himself.” “Read the glowing story of the history of all time as told in the ‘Harm sw orth History of the World —and you will understand. You will understand something of the mystic forces of which the present war is one of those periodic manifestations which mark the evolution of the world and is but the story of a thousand struggles which have gone before— repeating itself in an ever-widening scale.” “You may study Green and Prescott Kinglake and Motley Froude and Macaulay and all the rest of them but the prejudices of their ‘points of view will leave you less wise than when you began. You may have formed ‘opinions’ but you will not have acquired knowledge. Read the Harm sw orth History of the World— and you will be wise.” INFILL AND POST THIS COUPON and you will receive FREE BY RETURN OF POST Full Particulars of the 15- Volume To The Educational Book Co.
