Rav Kook, Orot Hamilchama - Part III
Why Are Wars an Essential Part of the Process of Redemption?
Even before Israel’s Wars of Independence, of Six Days, of Yom Kippur, etc, Rav Kook explains why the prophets tell us that wars are part of the national and universal redemption. Written during WWI, but even truer today, Rav Kook points out the important traits of altruism, unity and much more, that are brought out davka during war.
