Fabius Maximus, reference librarian

On the right menu bar the top section is ”Information you might find of interest.” This contains some reference libararies. Just to name a few: Links to the declassificed National Intelligence Estimates, Reports about the Amry’s greatest threat, and archives of online articles by important writers about modern warfare.

This last page provides links to archives of links to online works of major players in modern military theory and practice. Needless to say, this is a work in progress, as there are so many excellent people in these fields

One thought on “Fabius Maximus, reference librarian

  1. Here’s an essay that’s more like geopolitics than 4GW, but I highly recommend it: “Military or Market-Driven Empire Building: 1950-2008“, by James Petras, posted at the Center for Research on Globalization (29 April 2008). Here’s a teaser quote:

    “The US prolonged and costly war against Indo-China (roughly 1954-74) epitomized the replacement of European colonial-military empire building by the US version.”

    I think Petras is a leftist or possibly a Communist, but the essay is worth careful perusal IMHO.
