You Will Smell and Feel a Lot of Things

Someone has scanned in and posted a 1943 War and Navy Department guide to Iraq for soldiers that were serving there in World War II. It is fascinating reading both for itself and in comparison to the 2003 version for the current war, which was apparently written by an illiterate.

Someone really should have read the old version before we went to war - on page four it mentions that Iraqis are among the worlds most skilled guerrilla fighters in the world, while page five points out the foolishness of trying to go into a country and change the inhabitants. If only we had known!

It's really a fascinating read.
