After a long, very long silence, due to some professional overload, I am coming back to this blog.
In the very next days, I will focus on this quote of Marc Bloch:
“What drove our armies to disaster was the cumulative effect of a great number of different mistakes. One glaring characteristic is, however, common to all of them. Our leaders, or those who acted for them, were incapable of thinking in terms of a new war. In other words, the German triumph was, essentially, a triumph of intellect – and it is that which makes it so peculiarly serious.”
My comments will be organized in a series of short posts dedicated first to the man, then my thoughts on this sentence.
See you soon.
