The story of the origin of our own race is rich in such traditions, and the myths of Greece and Rome are common knowledge. But in the Egyptian story, there is little to tell of the childhood stage of a people’s development. Far as we can go back in their records, we always find Egypt in an advanced stage of civilization, with religion removed almost entirely beyond the stage…

    Download The civilization of the ancient Egyptians PDF Book by Bothwell Gosse (with Illustrations) 1915 Very interesting book with high-quality illustrations Excerpt from the author’s introduction A sympathetic understanding is the antidote to incredulity and will infuse the spirit into the letter of the stone-engraved monuments. The most striking characteristic of the civilizations of the world, especially of the West, is their evanescent nature.

Carthage, Greece and Rome ” have their day and cease to be.” There is no stability, no permanence. On the…

    The 1973 Arab-Israeli war: the albatross of decisive victory PDF book by George W. Gawrych Anwar Al Sadat Excerpt from the Author’s introduction: The observation that military establishments in peacetime generally prepare to fight their last war has acquired the status of a cliche. Whatever the merit of this generalization, it should not suggest that, in the wave of hostilities, military professionals should foreswear changes and adjustments designed to make their forces more proficient on future battlefields. Indeed, military forces that have just suffered a costly defeat often manifest a greater readiness to initiate military reforms than those that have experienced a decisive victory. One will recall, for example, that…
