The Work of Death: Hugh Nibley and War

Hugh Nibley knows warfare, ancient and modern, better than most. As a young boy, he overheard long discussions about World War I around the family dinner table. He later served as a non-commissioned intelligence officer in World War II. These experiences and his knowledge of ancient history convinced him that war in general is a “nasty and immoral business”, a conviction that has never left him and which has made him a consistent and effective voice for pacifism in Utah and the Church.
