Another Unwinnable War

Today is the sixty-first anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge. Last year, on the sixtieth, I noted how today's press would have covered it.

In this most excellent modern interpretation of the Battle of the Bulge, Rand said, "...led the nation into an invasion of Europe on clearly false pretenses."

'Tain't funny McGee! There is more than a smidgin of historical evidence, and a lot of supposition, that the USA was misled as to the importance of the European theater. A part of that was the severe underestimation of the ability of the Japanese to wage a Pacific war, in contrast to our "knowledge" of our own Germanic kinfolks' ability in Europe.
