        • I'll be taking a course in Victorian lit or early Shakespeare in the fall and needed some escapism. I'm feeling a little nostalgic for my geek youth and playing D&D in the 70s. Then I found this in the library cast off bin for 25 cents.

              • War Is A Racket by General Smedley Butler

                Just finished reading War Is A Racket by General Smedley D. Butler, first published 1935. Still very relevant today. Very good book.

                  • The Chief Culprit: "Viktor Suvorov"

                    An interesting book that I acquired some time ago but have only just got around to reading.

                    A newcomer to this forum, I checked the archives to see what posters had written about the work, and I see that it was comprehensively-if rather convolutedly -panned.

                    However in the spirit of "methinks they doth protest too much", I look forward to reading it.
                    "I dogmatise and am contradicted, and in this conflict of opinions and sentiments I find delight".

                      It was ok. Certainly worth reading, though. I want to read Zuber's new book on the Schlieffen Plan to see if he credits it to Bismarck. Steinberg mentions a conversation OvB had with Waldersee in 1888 (and mentioned in Waldersee's memoirs) in which OvB suggests violating Belgian neutrality in the event of a war with France!
