A few years ago, friend and fellow war/history buff David Galland (Casey Research
) turned me onto the "War Nerd."
The War Nerd writes a war column for the website www.exiledonline.com
. He's a fantastic writer and wit. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of war and history. In most of his columns, you can learn, laugh, and wince in the same paragraph.
