Detail books War
War "Our gravest error, in the late twentieth century," writes Gwynne Dyer, "is to overestimate our distance and difference from the past. We believe that the present round of competition between the great powers is different from all others in history, that it is invested with special significance because of its ideological dimension and because of its appalling consequences if it were to lead to war." But we are wrong: modern technology has changed only the results of war. Everything else about it is basically the same.
