Those who ignore history

Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it. There was a great interview the other day on Public Radio about this handbook that had been produced for US Servicemen posted in Iraq during WWII. The interview was with Lt. Colonel John A. Nagl who wrote a forward to the reprint. The point of all of this is that if some of our leaders both political and military had read this book we might be where we are now.

You can navigate to the NPR website to listen to archived audio of the show as well as read an illustrated excerpt from the book.

Also see the Chicago blog for more about the book.
