Military Professional Reading Lists The nation that will insist upon drawing a broad line of distinction between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its fighting done by fools and its thinking by cowards -- Sir William Francis Butler

I think the only complaint I have about this book is it's filled with the jargon of the CT professions. You know, a deputy undersecretary of whatever talking about how you've got to "synergize the boots on the ground with the hearts and minds while drinking three cups of tea" and all that. I suppose it's accurate; just seems annoying.
