According to my view this album's title describe pretty well what the album is about: war (both between countries and within them, with the latter I mean both civil wars and those wars terrorists make (IRA in northern Ireland to be specific)).
All the songs on the album reflects this on one way or the other, from Sunday Bloody Sunday and New Year's day to The Refugee and "40". Esp. "40" I think is a great "grand finale" to the album, how long do they have to sing about wars? When will Homo Sapiens (the so called "intelligent" man) learn to stop fighting?
