    WAB!

    I wish it were not such an addiction and I had more spare time!

    Can't say I am not benefiting!

    Did that one in 2004; it was one of my references, as well as other Ballard books like Explorations, for my work on Antiquity Theft.

    If we contrast the rapid progress of this mischievous discovery of gunpowder with the slow and laborious advances of reason, science, and the arts of peace, a philosopher, according to his temper, will laugh or weep at the folly of mankind. - Edward Gibbon

    It summarizes the planning (or lack thereof) of both the combat and postcombat stages of Operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as givena very detailed summary of the war itself and some analysis of why the postwar situation has proved so difficult. An extremely interesting read.

    Also, the original Operation Cobra was the major breakout from the Normandy pocket in WWII.
