The WWI thread got me thinking about this again. A couple of B. Tuchman books I've been wanting to read, any comments from people who have read any of these? _March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam_ _The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War 1890-1914_ I've read her definitive book on WWI and the Calamitous 14th Century book - both were outstanding works on their subjects - I couldn't praise them enough. That alone makes me itching to read these two I mentioned. What did you think of them?
