Hello

What does everyone think of Terence Zuber and his work? Seems a bit controversial in some circles

He's made positive contributions, controversial for the most part. He brings the element of a real military education to his History Phd, but I think he overestimates it. Overestimated in the sense that he was a Field Grade officer (Major), which qualifies him to analyze plans, just not Strategic ones. If he had pursued his career to COL and attended the War College, perhaps he would change some of his views.

His uninhibited admiration for the Kaiser’s army has got many people riled up. That’s what I noticed in online conversation.

He seems to have done his homework though.
