retired" Date: Sat, 30 Sep 2006 13:11:36 -0400 It is my subjective opinion that often military historians are not accorded due respect because they are perceived as "just telling war stories" that have no apparent relevance to today's events. To my mind, if more military historians engaged the social scientific method of aggregation and show, as Lind has, that military history is relevant to today's decision makers, then universities like Wisconsin will be encouraged to endow professorships of military history. For example, Lind originally developed the 'Fourth Generation' concept in a 1989 "Marine Corps Gazette" article. And, "Our troops found copies of it in the caves at Tora Bora, the al Quaeda hideout in Afghanistan." Now that's relevance!
