As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.

“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber
Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.
As the First World War raged more and more, so too did Haber’s zealotry for his country. Despite it being clearly obvious how much his patriotic drive was dividing him between long standing colleagues like Einstein and even his own spouse, Fritz Haber’s fervor for the Fatherland was undeterred.
