I ain’t gonna study war no more

I ain’t gonna study war no more

I don’t agree. We should not glorify war, but the more we understand about war the better we are able to avoid being stampeded into unnecessary wars.

Most wars start over the bullheadness of leaders as so well put in Barbara Tuchman’s “March of Folly”. This book talks about how leaders continue down the path of failed policy right into their own nation’s destruction.

Look back at “Some Favorite Books” Feb 5, for more titles or read some book reviews of books listed.
