Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid

Woolf, Virginia
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p51
This article discusses the air raid between Germans and Englishmen. Up there in the sky young Englishmen and young German men are fighting each other. The defenders are men, the attackers are men. Arms are not given to the English woman either to fight the enemy or to defend herself. She must lie weaponless tonight. Yet if she believes that the fight going on up in the sky is a fight by the English to protect freedom, by the Germans to destroy freedom, she must fight, so far as she can, on the side of the English.
