Sorry Ken but I can now definitely state that Hesse's book
REFLECTIONS (auf Deutsche: BETRACHTUNGEN) is a book different from IF THE
WAR GOES ON : REFLECTIONS ON WAR AND POLITICS.

The book IF THE WAR GOES ON : REFLECTIONS ON WAR AND POLITICS is a
collection of essays, originally titled
KRIEG UND FRIEDEN : BETRACHTUNGEN ZU KRIEG UND POLITIK
SEIT DEM JAHR 1914.

REFLECTIONS (BETRACHTUNGEN) is listed separately in the bibliography as a
work of non-fiction.

I did that choice little bit of research after carefully reading the first
40 pages of IF THE WAR GOES ON without
finding the passage in question.

Cheers,
Peter

Just a note to make it easier to find: the book's title translated is not
Reflections, but (as I found it) If The War Goes On; Reflections on War and
Politics.
