Imagine what it would be like to interview one of your HEROES. That’s what’s going on with me tomorrow.
Here’s a small portion Victor Davis Hanson’s bio (if you’re not aware of whom he is):
“Victor Davis Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, a professor of Classics Emeritus at California State University, Fresno, and a nationally syndicated columnist for Tribune Media Services.
He is also the Wayne & Marcia Buske Distinguished Fellow in History, Hillsdale College, where he teaches each fall semester courses in military history and classical culture.
He is currently finishing The Second World Wars, a history of World War II for Basic Books. Hanson recently published an historical novel The End of Sparta (Bloomsbury 2012), a realistic retelling of Epaminondas invasion and liberation of the helots of Spartan-controlled Messenia. In The Father of Us All (Bloomsbury 2011), he collected earlier essays on warfare, ancient and modern. His most recent history The Savior Generals (Bloomsbury 2013) analyzes how five generals saved what were considered lost wars.”
To prep for the segment, here’s Victor’s three most recent articles:
- The tough choices of overseas intervention -“The choices are all awful. But the idea that America can bomb a rogue regime, leave and expect something better is pure fantasy.”
- Iraq: The Real Story – “Donald Trump’s account of the Iraq War is all wrong. Why aren’t his Republican opponents saying so?”
- Weimar America – “Segregation, not integration and assimilation, is the new trajectory of racial relations. “White privilege” is said to be such an insidious aid to career success that careerist whites like Elizabeth Warren, Ward Churchill, Shaun King, and Rachel Dolezal will do almost anything to insist that they are really non-white.”
He also is has another book in the pipeline, titled “The Second World Wars: Why, Where, and How 60 Million Died” and hopefully he’ll give us a preview.
As you can imagine, I’m staggeringly excited.
The show is live at 7am PST / 10am EST.
