Many of you may have heard of Denis Diderot and his many volumes of Encyclopedia he fought to get published in the mid-18th Century. The military entries are interesting. For instance, there is an entry for "Petite-Guerre" or Small War, written by "Q" the psuedo for Guillame Le Blond who wrote many of the articles regarding military affairs.

I posted my translation of his entry on my web page (I refuse to use the word "blog") at: http://jayhawkerslogbook.blogspot.com/ today. I also have a small bit about the context and the impact. It is very revealing in some ways about the subject we are all interested in. Appreciate comments from any and all.

Happy New Year!
