By Brian Bond

Brian Bond writes with blinders on.

Keegan, for example, didn't say that the easiest army leaders happened in the course of the nice conflict, as Bond implies. Bond is, in spite of everything, one of many new revisionist historians, who, regardless of displaying a few advantage in interpreting a few of the tv and picture interpretations of the good struggle, whines on constantly concerning the excessive ethical management of the inept and self-righteous Alexander Haig, while undercutting extra critical research/historians who've collected the evidence and provided them in a methodical means. Bond's one zero one web page diatribe (I disregard his five web page self-congratulation in being a part of the Lees Knowles Lectures, which has not anything whatever to do with the most thesis of his e-book) of glossed-over evidence, and negative learn, is instantly learn and poorly researched. do not waste some time or cash. he's the archetype of revisionist heritage.
