Albert Einstein and the First World War


In 1914, at the start of the First World War, in response to 93 of Germay's leading scientists signing a pro-war "Manifesto of the Ninety-Three", Albert Einstein wrote an anti-war manifesto but could get only three of his fellow scientists to sign it and it was not published for many years. Einstein thought the war was madness and he was a lifelong pacifist and war resister.
