Excerpt from Reconstruction Our Full Duty to the World
There are towns so completely levelled they do not make the tiniest bump on the horizon line.
Other towns like Ypres and Lille, lift up a few skeleton buildings, splintered and grotesque, screaming their contrast with the flat waste around them.
Some cities that were not bombarded, but were burned, from afar off seem quite intact. But close-ups reveal block after block charred, roofless shells of buildings.
