About the Book

A series of masterfully written poetical dramas that captures the reader and takes one through the ages and around the globe, presenting the similar strife and issues which arise during four different periods of global conflict. But by the Chance of War comprises three distinct historically based dramas and one prophetic contemporary tale with common philosophical links which are presented as Mathura, Niagara, Amiens, and Moriah. Each story discovers the common human weaknesses that lead to all conflicts, culminating in the unknown battleground of our new technological age, and discovers a globally and historically shared answer to these mutual human flaws, as obvious as it is ignored amidst history’s dust.
