Britain had a stronger economy and a squad of accomplished generals leading a seemingly unbeatable army that had, until then, crushed its opponents at will. The contest was so lopsided the bookies were offering up a hundred point spread.

“They fail not because they’re unable to adapt to society’s mores, but because they adapt too well to the rules of poverty and violence that govern the world in which they’re raised. Lawyers”
