While in K-town, I stopped at the awesome used book Mecca of McKay's. While there, I picked up a copy of War Made New by Max Boot, and I'm now about halfway through it. It's a good read, and dovetails nicely with Victor Davis Hanson's Ripples of Battle, which I'd just finished.
What I'm kicking myself over is the fact that I'd walked past The Savage Wars Of Peace at McKay's dozens of times, and never bought it. Given the wildly polarized reviews, I wanted to see what the fuss was about for myself. We stopped at Half Price Books out in Castleton yesterday, but despite a good military history section, they had bupkis by Boot. Boy, I'm bitter.
