The effects of World War I and II were amplified by their closeness in time, providing two generations fatigued by war. "Prophet: The Hatmaker's Son, the Life of Robert Muller" follows the story of Robert Muller who, having experienced the two great wars, wished to do what he could to push for persisting peace. Dedicating his life to extending European peace, he never let those dreams escape him. "Prophet" is a strong pick for community and library collections dedicated to history and biography, very much recommended.
