Three Truths About The Personal Study of War

By The Cove February 13, 2019


'Imagine if someone told you that a year from today, you would be required to take a test in which every wrong answer resulted in the loss of a human life. How would you approach studying for the test?'

The test is a practical exercise called "War". If we aren't prepared the results can be devastating. In this article via From the Green Notebook the author, Joe Byerly, provides us with three truths that he has learnt about self-study in the hope of motivating others to prepare now before our own test.
