Typed notes “'Disarmament and peace' by F.W. Lanchester, LL.D., F.R.S."

Scope and Content

Argument; everyone wants peace; then why do some oppose disarmament and the League of Nations? If there were no sanction behind the police; problem is really one of degree, i.e. how much to disarm. If we had to conduct wars with scaled down forces the war would take longer to conclude; another peace policy is for the peace-loving nations to possess an overwhelming superiority of arms.
