Book Review: Edicts of Ares - 13 Absolute Rules of Warfare by Michael Riggscategories: Books, History, military
Limited War Means Unlimited Suffering. Unlimited War Means Limited Suffering.If I were down to my last twenty, and it was a choice between this book and a meal, I'd go hungry. I read it and re-read it, each time understanding more and more. It is too bad that our senior leaders don't read this book, and learn quite clearly why we have had disasters in Korea, Viet Nam, and now Iraq, Part Two.
The author has apparently researched his material quite thoroughly, and somehow managed to distill millenia of boring material into easily understood concepts that have proven themselves for millenia. His blistering connections between what is required for victory and what we have been doing is blunt, politically incorrect, and often humorous. At least it would be if it weren't true.
Not for the faint hearted. Not for the politically correct. Any reader at the end of the book will likely know more about what it would take to win a war than our own generals.
