As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read, and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie.

Martin van Creveld The Culture of War
Presidio Press 2006 ISBN: 0345505409 512 pages File type: PDF 13.7 mb
A respected scholar of military history and an expert on strategy, Martin van Creveld recently explored the modern world¡¯s shifting method of combat in The Changing Face of War. Now, in The Culture of War, he argues that there is much more to war than just soldiers killing one another for whatever reason.
War has always been a topic of deep intrigue. Fighting itself can be a source of great, perhaps even the greatest, joy; out of this joy and fascination an entire culture has grown¨Cfrom the war paint of tribal warriors to today¡¯s tiger suits, from Julius Caesar¡¯s red cloak to Douglas McArthur¡¯s pipe, from the decorative shields of ancient Greece to today¡¯s nose art, and from the invention of chess around 600 A.D. to the most modern combat simulators. The culture of war has its own traditions, laws and customs, rituals, ceremonies, music, art, literature, and monuments since the beginning of civilization.
Throughout the ages, the culture of war has usually been highly esteemed. Not so in today¡¯s advanced countries, which tend either to mock it (military intelligence is to intelligence what military music is to music) or to denounce it as militaristic. This provocative book, the first of its kind, sets out to show how wrongheaded, and even dangerous, such attitudes are. The Culture of War argues that men and women, contrary to the hopes of some, are just as fascinated by war today as they have been in the past. A military that
has lost touch with the culture of war is doomed not merely to defeat but to disintegration.
Innovative, authoritative, and riveting, this is a major work by one of the world¡¯s greatest and most insightful military historians.
