Listen now | Learned so much from Sarah Paine, Professor of History and Strategy at the Naval War College. We discuss: how continental vs maritime powers think, and how this explains Xi and Putin's decisions why the British Empire fell apart, why China went communist, how Hitler and Japan could have coordinated to win WW2, andwhether Japanese occupation was good for Korea, Taiwan and Manchuria
Fantastic interview, fantastic guest.
By the way, a lot of your questions about both the logistics of winning war, as well as the axis power’s inability to cooperate, reminded me of Victor Davis Hanson’s book The Second World Wars. Since you’re reading about this stuff, you might be interested, if you haven’t come across it already. Great book.
Terrific interview, thank you! I wish I had been able to take her classes when I was in grad school for military history -- picking up her books now. :)
Great stuff, I really enjoyed it! 💚 🥃
This lady knows nothing more about China than the New York Times allows: the standard Western Narrative for Losers.
Claiming that 'Covid Came from China,' for example, is not only scientifically indefensible, since China is the only country to hav permitted a foreign investigation. Until the US and Europe follow suit, we won't know.
But we DO know, because the CDC told us, that the world's first Covid death occurred in Kansas, not China.
And we DO because the CDC told us, that 4-6 million Americans were Covid seropositive in 2019.
And this bogus 'historian' doesn't know that?
But she knows how Xi and Putin think?
CDC: World's first Covid death: US Jan. 9, 2020. (First Chinese death Jan 11). https://tinyurl.com/bddh5vbz
CDC: Serologic testing finds 1-4% seropositive in December 2019: "These findings suggest that SARS-CoV-2 may have been introduced into the United States prior to 19 January 2020." https://tinyurl.com/bde86nfu
Great, great interview. Thank you very much for it. Excellent choice of guest.
Looking forward to it! 💚 🥃
