Harry Patch and the First World Slaughter


"War is organised murder and nothing else”. “It was not worth it, it was not worth one let alone all the millions” (Harry Patch)

 Two of the last known surviving combatants of the first World Slaughter died in July. Both were over a hundred-years old.  The second of the two, Harry Patch, had some very enlightening views on the subject of the slaughter. Not surprisingly some sections of the media, not wanting to upset the military and other dealers in death, were not inclined to give some of his views the prominence which they deserved.
