War II and earlier. Neglecting the lessons of history has two major disadvantages:
time is wasted in developing procedures and methods that are a matter of record
and effort is wasted in selling these concepts on the basis of their anticipated
benefits when overwhelming historic evidence of their worth exists. One could

Between 1861 and 1865, Americans fought the largest and costliest war yet

readers, students, and teachers who would like to do more than that, who want to
look at the ...
