Loved it! Considering this book is 500 years old, it is still so pertinent. The archaisms are delightful and the arguments strong - strong enough to remain pertinent.

Reading through, I couldn't help but pick up on the seeds of proto-Reformation and humanism. I recommend this book for its unique look into the time period (they had muskets in in the 1500s?!) as much as a varied theological critique of warfare.

Kitap türkler üzerine yazılmış gibii :) kesinlikle okunması gerekiyor sadece savaş değil deliliğe övgü deki gibi bir çok toplum kesimi eleştirilmiştir.
