    Cole Christy will do a brief presentation and review of three books: 1) Drift by Rachel Maddow, the MSNBC personality, traces the history of the US military freeing itself of civilian control. 2) Days of Defiance by historian Maury Klein about the lead up to the Civil War. 3) Fantasyland, an idiosyncratic look at American History by novelist Kurt Anderson. Three very different books, hopefully will lead to some good discussion.

    Those who do not learn the lessons of history are destined to repeat them.
