I noticed that there are two oppossing veiws of warfare in the books. Conphas states that war is intellect and Khellus States that war is conviction. At one point in time I would have totally agreed with the belief that Conphas holds. Yet after reading TWP and reflecting back on several wars and campaigns I have read I see that conviction is a major role too. What made you pick up on this and make it a part of your books? I also love the way Cnauir describes warfare as an arguement it is priceless. view post

This question actually strikes at the heart of several big thematic axes I'm grinding throughout the books, Harrol. Since I feel cheesy interpreting my own stuff (which is not to say I don't enjoy the vanity of doing so!), I'll just say that it's the intersection of the two approaches I'm interested in, the interplay of intellect and belief - not just in war, but in society as a whole. Belief empowers, there's no question about that. The issue is one of whom and for what end. view post
