oh no

was unhappy to find underlining in ink in this book, which was touted as new, with simple shelf wear. tut tut.


Great book from great person

by Avenger on Jan 21, 2010

Warfare has been more than popular theme in any historical period. Chris' book is eyewitness' guide to modern warfare, but he speaks about constant, eternal questions: why humans wage wars, what they feel when they do it and why this action is insane. Chris is honest, he names things with their names, and he is extremely close to reality. I ordered this book for my post-doctoral research because of all these values.
