Summary

In Percy F. Westerman's 'A Sub. of the R.N.R', readers are taken on a thrilling adventure that combines elements of naval fiction, action, and camaraderie. The vivid descriptions of naval battles and life at sea immerse readers in the exciting world of submarines during World War I. Westerman's writing style is fast-paced and engaging, keeping readers on the edge of their seats as they follow the protagonist's journey through danger and intrigue. The book's historical context provides valuable insights into the realities of war and the sacrifices made by those serving in the Royal Naval Reserve. Overall, 'A Sub. of the R.N.R' is a compelling read that offers both entertainment and a deeper understanding of naval history. Percy F. Westerman's own experiences as a sailor in the Royal Navy likely influenced his decision to write 'A Sub. of the R.N.R'. His firsthand knowledge of naval operations and camaraderie shines through in his detailed and authentic portrayal of life on a submarine. Westerman's passion for storytelling and naval history is evident in his vivid descriptions and meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend 'A Sub. of the R.N.R' to readers who enjoy historical fiction, naval adventure, or simply a well-crafted story that keeps them turning the pages. Westerman's expertise and skill as a writer make this book a must-read for anyone interested in the thrilling world of submarines and naval warfare.

    Fourteen of history’s longest-running military conflicts, from the Greco-Persian Wars to the Sudanese Civil War. 
     
    Sometimes the causes of war are so intractable, the opponents so unyielding, and the rivalries so deep-rooted that the combat continues for years, decades, even centuries. And often when it does abate, the resentments still smolder, so that the slightest spark might reignite the conflagration. 
     
    An at once captivating and unsettling volume, Why Some Wars Never End shines a spotlight on fourteen of history’s longest-running conflicts. They range from the almost century-long Punic Wars, which saw ancient Rome achieve dominance over the Mediterranean and lay the foundations of its world-changing empire, to the seventy years of uprisings and bloody encounters that triggered the Jewish Diaspora in the second century CE, to the nineteenth-century Seminole Wars, which virtually wiped out the Seminole Indians, to the violent British suppression of Afghan self-rule that set the stage for that nation’s distressing contemporary plight. 
     
    Each of these wars had consequences and influences far beyond its source and the reach of its battles, not only redrawing political boundaries, but also coloring the worldview of generations of participants and bystanders, and thereby refashioning entire cultures. And all demonstrate, in harrowing fashion, why violence still stains our modern world, and why warfare shows no sign of ending any time soon.

    It is a hard psychological fact that the desire for pleasure is the ultimate factor in most of human decision-making. But as dominant as the pleasure principle has been in the cultural development of mankind, its impact has so far never been fully acknowledged. In the hands of a powerful minority that controls global capital flows, pleasure has been turned into the most profitable item for sale, preying on the consumerist desires it helped to create.
    
    Re-evaluating the very notion of 'pleasure' and assessing its often sinister influence on the course of our civilization, The Pursuit of Pleasure unveils how the determinants of human behavior are now in the hands of global marketers whose sole aim is the maximization of profit, not the personal development of their customers. This powerful book shows how the overcoming of the pleasure principle through the management of pleasure can be the foundation of a new humanist culture in which people are conscious and aware of their choices.
