Kings of War – New addition to Wig-Wags Blogroll
On April 6, 2010
Kings of War is a new addition to my blogroll and a great one. Bloggers include “faculty and research students of the Department of War Studies, King’s College London.”Included among the writers are: David Betz, The Faceless Bureaucrat, Kenneth Payne, Thomas Rid, Rob Dover, David Ucko, Tim Stevens, Captain Hyphen, and Paula Broadwell.
I like the organization. This from “The Idea” page.
Kings of War is about strategy, widely defined.
We assign each of our posts to one (or more) of seven “columns” – the tabs at the top of the page. Alanbrooke is about British national security and defense. Clausewitz deals with strategic theory. Galula explores counterinsurgency. Grant, like the U.S. general and president, is concerned with American grand strategy. Mao covers insurgency and terrorism. Thucydides is history. Turing, as in Alan Turing, reviews cyberwar and the virtual dimension of conflict.
