Re: Books from the time of pandemic: notes and comments

Thank you very much Daniel for this wonderful overview of the recent titles! We surely missed your thorough book discussions, which you used to post here on H-EarlySlavic. We appreciate your work! I always find it practical to have such lists of current titles at hand when f.ex. faced with the task of ordering new books for our university library.

Re: Brand on Proctor, 'Lessons Unlearned: The U.S. Army's Role in Creating the Forever Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq'

I am not as willing as Professor Brand is to accept the validity of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's statement, "you go to war with the Army you have, not the one you want." In the aftermath of September 11, Rumsfeld could easily have gotten a substantial expansion of the US Army if he had wanted one. He didn't want that. He went to war in Iraq in 2003 with an army too small to put a lot of boots on the ground in Iraq not because this choice had been imposed on him by fate or by the policies of his predecessors, but because that was what he had wanted.
