Citino’s blog, “Full-Metal Jousting Call”, the crusader states, and the Small Wars Journal

A short post for a busy day…

I should have known this before, I suppose, but I just saw yesterday that Robert Citino, the great scholar of the Wehrmacht, has a blog, to which I would earnestly direct your attention. He writes with the same energy that he has at conferences.  Two notices from Steve Muhlberger’s blog: one on a real “casting call” for “full metal jousting.” No joke.  And a second is a call for critiques of Historian on the Edge’s post “The Unbearable Weight of Being a Historian.”  Worth reading, and I might do a post on this myself in the near future.

Next, a link from Medievalists.net to an old article about medical practices in the crusader states.

And finally, two stories from the Small Wars Journal: one about recent Army worries regarding “toxic leadership” (read their definition of what a toxic leader is–not just confined to the Army, imho), and one by Mark Kukis on why a complete U.S. withdrawal from Iraq would be the best thing for all concerned.

Ok, back to work…
