Writing about 'War Makers', Lois White commented: "The main idea behind the composition in question is the injustice done to youth, by the decision of those older generation to have wars and send their sons to be slaughtered and maimed, while many grow fat on the proceeds. Financiers, money-grubbers, politicians, the thoughtless type of patriotism, are contributing factors which I have tried to suggest, with helpless youth being torn from equally helpless youth and home."
