Sarah’s mom and dad gave me this book a few months back and as I hadn’t heard of it I was quite intrigued. Philip Bobbitt provides an impressive amount of detail in each page. While this leads to a somewhat dry writing-style, the insights and connections presented easily make it worthwhile. I may begin taking notes as I read to solidify my understanding of the subjects.
Covering the situations surrounding war and peace over the last six centuries is breathtaking in scope, but required background if one is to understand our past and its relation to the tumultuous present.
It is important to me that I challenge my mind these days. It is all too easy to fall into a routine of complacency fed by entertainment devices.
I’ll add more to this entry as I read.
