ྫྷ Best new ῴ The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam  ⚭ ePUB Author Barbara W Tuchman ⚹ ྫྷ Best new ῴ The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam ⚭ ePUB Author Barbara W Tuchman ⚹ Pulitzer Prizewinning historian Barbara W Tuchman, author of the World War I masterpiece The Guns of August, grapples with her boldest subject the pervasive presence, through the ages, of failure, mismanagement, and delusion in government Drawing on a comprehensive array of examples, from Montezumas senseless surrender of his empire in 1520 to Japans attack on Pearl Harbor, Barbara W Tuchman defines folly as the pursuit by government of policies contrary to their own interests, despite the availability of feasible alternatives In brilliant detail, Tuchman illuminates four decisive turning points in history that illustrate the very heights of folly the Trojan War, the breakup of the Holy See provoked by the Renaissance popes, the loss of the American colonies by Britains George III, and the United States own persistent mistakes in Vietnam Throughout The March of Folly, Tuchmans incomparable talent for animating the people, places, and events of history is on spectacular display Praise for The March of
