9781612039077: The Great War Syndicate

Frank Stockton's The Great War Syndicate centers around steamship warfare in the late 19th century, between Great Britain and the United States war over fishing rights in the Atlantic Ocean. A group of billionaire capitalists, a War Syndicate, who offer to assume the expense of a war for the United States after a gunfight erupts between two vessels off the Canadian coast - "the American flag had been hauled down by Englishmen, an American naval vessel had been fired into and captured; that was enough!" It turns out that the syndicate has super weapons and stages, for observers from both sides, examples of how future wars are futile. Frank R. Stockton was an American popular novelist and short-story writer of mainly humorous fiction, best known as the author of the title story of a collection called "The Lady, or the Tiger?".

About the Author:

Frank Richard Stockton (April 5, 1834 - April 20, 1902) was an American writer and humorist, best known today for a series of innovative children's fairy tales that were widely popular during the last decades of the 19th century. Stockton avoided the didactic moralizing, common to children's stories of the time, instead using clever humor to poke at greed, violence, abuse of power and other human foibles, describing his fantastic characters' adventures in a charming, matter-of-fact way in stories like "The Griffin and the Minor Canon" (1885) and "The Bee-Man of Orn" (1887), which was published in 1964 in an edition illustrated by Maurice Sendak. 'The Great War Syndicate' proposes a small war between the USA and UK over fishing rights off the Canadian coast and is interesting not only because of the innovative weaponry used by the USA but more by the fact that the US Government out-sources the war to a private 'Syndicate' (group of Capitalists) who are then paid on a sliding scale, by the speed at which they successfully conclude the war. End it faster, get paid more!
