A Refutation to Naysayers
I bought this book at a booksigning in Chicago where I meet the single greatest military historian alive today. There are some who would call this work unscholarly, non-factual. Those that do make this criticism lack the understanding that history can be fun, comprehensible, readable, as well as informative. The easy, informal style(a big departure for Keegan) must be a shock to those historians who disguise their lack of originality and understanding with a mass of jargon and prose that is dense and leaden. Keegan brings forth a fascinating discussion of the intertwining of strategy and geography in North America. Whether one accepts the thesis or not, one cannot doubt or criticize the informal, yet thoroughly critical and scholarly way he presents it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
