Grande Armee invasion of Russia
September 11, 2018
Charles Minard’s graph follows Napolean’s Grande Armee thru it’s march to (tan color) and back from (black color) Moscow. Napoleon who understood the ‘friction of war’ started the campaign with approximately 600,000 soldiers. The black line shows the severity of the forced retreat with 20,000 some of his initial 600,000 troops eventually making it back to France.
Which brings me back to thinking about General Lee at Gettysburg, with his Calvary commander Jeb Stewart’s location unknown, all culminating in Pickett’s Charge.

On Grand Strategy
August 23, 2018

It was because our strategy was wrong that our tactics, whatever they were—and they were various—never worked out. And if now we do not develop a grand strategy of peace, we shall be wrong again—and we shall have another war.”
Richard Law, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, March 1942

Two sides of pain.

“There’s another side of pain. It’s called effort. It’s called glory. It’s called if you can find a way to push through pain there’s something greater on the other side of it. And if you never tap into it, it’s because the first time you felt it you backed off.”
