Never call retreat.

The third book in the bruce carton trilogy about the civil war.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

The Currents of Space, by Isaac Asimov. It's a precursor to his legendary Foundation novels.
Patriotic centrist American, who is right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.
Call me Pax. I take things literally, being a literal person.

Swords from the Desert by Harold Lamb. I am disappointed so few have heard of this wonderful pulp author and historian who worked at the same time as Howard and inspired him.
