Read This Book

At LAX en route to London (Treoblogging). I’m almost finished with Col. Thomas X. Hammes’ magisterial book ‘The Sling And The Stone.’

If you read this blog, you’ll like this book, and more, you’ll learn from it.

I got it on Phil Carter’s recommendation.

Thanks, Phil – for this and everything.

One thought on “Read This Book”

  1. The book is a great one, especially in his analysis of the problems with netwar. It reminded me of some of my criticisms with the whole Moneyball idea. The Colonel’s take on the first and second intifada and AQ are well worth reading. In the Washington Post last weekend, he had an op-ed that listed the most recommended books from inside the Pentagon. I think Small wars Journal has the link on their site.
