Ngram: war & peace

Yesterday I wrote about the Google Ngram Viewer and how to use it.  Have you tried it?

Here is another example of a search I tried, using two words: war and peace.

Except for a spike in the use of the word war around 1570, the word peace usually led until around 1740, when it was overtaken.
It never regained its lead.

war,peace

Do you have an Ngram search tip? Any interesting words or phrases?
