A book of short stories that were written for tweens and teens toward the end of the First World War and can only be interpreted as propaganda and indocrination into the WWI war effort. One story has a young boy asking his father why he didn't by Liberty Bonds, another asking his grandfather what depredations the Germans will do visit upon to "us" (in America) if they win the war.
