The interesting blog of Swedish military historian and defence analyst Lars Gyllenhaal continues to provide thought-provoking insights into aspects of Nordic and European security, past and present. with references to little-known and little-publicized historical, literary and other documentary sources. Among recent posts to the blog are:
- a review of a book called If Germany Had Won — 53 Alternative Scenarios, with a chapter containing speculations on questions such as what might have happened if Sweden had been drawn into the Winter War of 1939-40, or had said no to Hitler in 1941.
- a dissection and general Fisking of the 9/11 “Truth Movement”, with some unexpected words from Noam Chomsky.
- an examination of Russia’s new defence policy in the light of a recent BBC report, and a look at one puzzling recent development.
