Written by Mark Twain during the Philippine-American War in the first decade of the twentieth century, The War Prayer tells of a patriotic church service held to send the town's young men off to war.

5 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two old-timers lock horns in this lean, affecting short story set in 1923 and permeated with nostalgia for the Old West. One is gruff, tobacco-chewing Tom Bird, a Texas rancher; the other a sullen Comanche ex-war-chief named Starlight. Years earlier, they squared off in near-fatal combat. Years later on a stopover from Oklahoma, Starlight and his party of eight Comanche men demand that Bird donate his largest bull, Shakespeare, for a sacrifice. What is unspoken between the two protagonists--mutual respect, a nascent fraternal bond--is at least as important as what is made explicit
