History

Interesting Stuff That You Should Know

I like reading about history, and the old adage that if you don't study the past you are condemned to repeat it, is even more true today in our troubled and turbulent times. I also like to research subjects that I didn't learn in school, so this is a collection of articles that hopefully you will find useful and informative. I am not a professional historian, so I apologize for any inaccuracies in advance.

Afghanistan - The Russian Experience Some call it the USSR's Vietnam - but why couldn't the Communist Superpower prevail in this tiny country, and should it teach us lessons about our current involvement?

 

The Korean War Now with it's own Nuclear weapons, how did the split in Korea Start, and the rogue state of North Korea come to be?

 

The Malyan Emergency How between 1948 and 1960 Britain and her allies fought a Communist Insurgency in Malaysia using counter-insurgency and hearts and minds. And won.

 

Pegasus Bridge A Story of outstanding planning, daring and bravery - could we do it today?

 

Lessons from Waco Some short musings about the Branch Davidians and how that relates to us, 14 years later. Roman Emperor Augustus One of the most important figures in the history of Western Civilisation - it could be said he saved the Empire from it's self, and ushered in a new age of posperity, peace & expansion.
