    Abstract

    The article focuses on the problems associated with arms control and how these problems can be resolved with recourse to war. It highlights the physical agony, psychological trauma, and senseless destruction associated with armed conflict. It refers several books which presents such destruction including "An Intimate History of Killing: Face-to-Face Killing in Twentieth Century Warfare" by Joanna Bourke and "With Rifle and Bayonet" by Frederick Sadleir Brereton. It discusses the psychiatric casualties of modern warfare.
