The Havoc Journal
« on: 05/31-19:04 »

This Blog is by veterans, for veterans. 

Some of the writing is very insightful, some of the writers should hang out here.  The topics are as varied as the writers, ranging from prose to PTSD, from combat experiences to politics.  If you ever needed proof that the military is not a monolithic entity, check out the Havok Journal.

You'll be glad you did!

20 Great Books: A Reading List for Future Warrior-Scholars would you add anything, or take anything away, from this list?
Sun Tzu-The Art of War
Mandatory reading in any military college for a reason.  Sun Tzu breaks war down to its component parts, and shows how they go back together.  For the strategic thinker, but also has tactical applications.
Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain-The Passing of the Armies
J.L. Chamberlain, apart from his Medal of Honor for his actions at Gettysburg, opines on the war, and has definite ideas of how the country should heal.  He was a professor of rhetoric at Bowduin College in Maine.  His writing style is of interest,max is his first-hand accounts of the end of the war. 

His act of honor on the surrender of his enemies, in the face of the passions aflame in he hearts of men at the time, still inspire me.  If we had more men like Colonel Chamberlain, this world would be a better place.

Here's a few you may find worthwhile.

On War: The Complete Edition  by General Carl von Clausewitz.

U.S. Army U.S. Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual by David H. Petraeus, James F. Amos, and edited by John C. McClure.

You also want to read anything your enemy has written or uses as a guide.  Hitler's Mein Kampf and Rommel's Infantry Attacks in WWII and Islam's Quran to understand today's terrorists.
