    ENDORSEMENTS

    “Captain Paul K. Chappell has given us a crucial look at war and peace from the unique perspective of a soldier, and his new ideas show us why world peace is both necessary and possible in the 21st century.  The End of War can help people everywhere understand why war must end, and how together we can end it.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

    “We’ve all heard of the mind’s eye; Paul K. Chappell offers us a view through the heart’s eye.  His life, his military experience, and his insight have inspired him to share something that is already changing us.  Every reader of his books will know we are seeing an important new author emerge. He is one we need.” – Gavin de Becker, best-selling author of The Gift of Fear

    The End of War is another timeless masterpiece, building upon Paul K. Chappell’s previous work with brilliant insight and lucid prose, in order to identify: the root cause of war, the most difficult artform (living!), how to live and why to live, and a true “toolbox” of skills and wisdom to begin the process of building a peaceful world.” – Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, author of On Killing and On Combat, Director of the Warrior Science Group

    Note on the cover image. The sculpture shown is The Triumph of Napoleon in 1810 by Jean-Pierre Cortot, part of L’Arc de Triomphe in Paris. The Romans used laurel wreaths to celebrate military conquest. This sculpture shows Napoleon being crowned with such a wreath at the height of his power. Triumph depicts the glorification of war, the leaders who drag countries into war, and the celebration of death that disregards the soldiers and civilians killed during war.
