Destined To Become Great

It is rare that you can see and participate in the writing of history. Usually it is done years after the events by those that were not present, relying on so-called primary sources that are generally anecdotal and incomplete.

Mil-Blogs, particuarly those written in the field, are such primary resources. And now, thanks to Blackfive, there is going to be an anthology of the best of the Milblogs published as a book. (HT: Dadmanly)

Such a compilation can rightly be called a "first draft of history." The best news is this draft will be written and edited by those that genuinely know what is and is not important. There is no doubt in my mind that historians will use this as a reference for a long time to come.

If you have a favorite Milblog and/or Milblog post email Blackfive with your nomination. Be sure to include a link if you can.

Kudos to the milbloggers for this great accomplishment.
