“The next war will be an interplanetary war."

One of the most remarkable things about the American victory in the Second World War is that we did so with some real weirdos at the helm. Patton believed in reincarnation, and was convinced that he'd been a Roman legionnaire and a marshal in the armies of Napoleon. And now, I discover that MacArthur was concerned about alien invasion. Perhaps he'd read an early manuscript of this book.
