Many years ago I read The World of Yesterday by Stefan Zweig. I believe that in this book there was the following, real-life story: Shortly before the outbreak of World War II several intellectuals, including the author, discussed whether or not a big war (like World War I) was possible. They agreed it wasn't because they believed that peoples of Europe were too tired from the first war to want a second one.
I tried to find the exact quote in the Kindle edition, but couldn't.
Did Stefan Zweig write this? If yes, where (book, chapter)?
