The author clearly illustrates that the only reason this unwritten law has such devastating effects on society is because it empowers our very own political leaders as its sole agents for obtaining its desired unmitigated destruction. Their war-creating endeavors then cause its deadly effects to manifest on people and communities.
The insidious power of this root cause of war has created armed conflicts throughout history. However, for the first time ever, this illustrated and factual book describes how this root cause can be permanently eliminated to give society a conflict-free world.
Dr. Eseonu also investigates the secondary causes of war, which act as the immediate stimulants for the instigation and start of wars. This concept is illustrated in the book by the wars that have occurred throughout history—from ancient to modern times.
Unchecked, They’ll Kill Us All also describes how modernity and technological advances are progressively and irreversibly making armed conflicts “un-winnable", regardless of military superiority and degree of tactical planning. This glaring reality, though yet being ignored by military planners who normally do not die or even get injured in the wars that they organize, strengthens the idea that preventing wars now is of utmost importance.
The author also explores how, now in our technological age, if wars continue to flare up around the globe, humankind will continue to exist in a state of perpetual fearfulness, with that state of insecurity leading to more wars and even total annihilation, as described in the chapter, “They’ll Kill Us All”.
The preventative process—which can be enforced globally without the use of any organized armed force—is also explained. The process, which he describes as “incredibly simple but very robust,” could be adopted worldwide if humankind is made aware of the ideas in the book.
Indeed, as soon as the world's society becomes persuaded of this genuine possibility of 'routine' prevention of all wars, rather than persisting with its present presumptive indulgence in a historically established attitude of mutual acceptance of war, then the straightforward process of global war prevention, as suggested in the book, can begin.
Unchecked, They’ll Kill Us All is a heartfelt, bold and honest attempt to find a final cure for war’s deadly cancer on society. This book, for the first time ever, reveals the prime reason for all wars and describes an enforceable prevention mechanism, so that a real possibility now exists for securing a peaceful planet.
Dr. Eseonu’s objective is to explain why and how wars can be permanently prevented—and mobilize us to achieve this goal. No one, he hopes, will have to suffer in the future as he did in the past.

Onyebuchi Chikezie Eseonu, a medical doctor since 1978, experienced the profound effects of a major armed conflict during his late teenage years, between 1967 and 1970. More than three million lives were lost, including those of some members of his family.
The years since his painful experiences have been spent in an almost continuous inquest aimed at identifying the root cause of all wars, if any single cause exists. If discovered and eliminated in every instance, then it would be possible to prevent all wars and their grim consequences.
Dr. Eseonu's professional training as a medical doctor between 1972 and 1978 also enhanced his ability to identify the origins of potential problems and devise methods of prevention.
With wars, preventing the deaths and associated injuries, and eliminating the consequent socio-cultural devastations, would reassert the following basic medical principle: to prevent any injury, disease, or problem is always more beneficial than any efforts directed at treating them when established.
The author is also an obstetrician and gynecological surgeon in the United Kingdom where he lives with his wife Patricia, also a medical doctor, and their four children.
