niall ferguson

Interesting article by Niall Ferguson on pardoning of WW1 soldier pardons. I've just started watching his War of the World series, which I've got backed up on video. I enjoyed his series on the British Empire, which some people thought was too right wing and re-revisionist - he thinks the British Empire was a good thing - but I was with him on it. His War of the World series thesis is that the twentieth century was one long conflict, driven not by ideology or nations but by race.
