Ghia died on June 1, 2005

The Road to Brussels

“History is not, of course, a cookbook offering pretested recipes. It teaches by analogy, not by maxims. It can illuminate the consequences of actions in comparable situations, yet each generation must discover for itself what situations are in fact comparable.”

 — Henry Kissinger, quoted in
     Drama of the Diagonal, Part Deux

Alain Boublil

“Along the road from Ohain to Braine-l’Alleud that hemmed in the plain of Mont-St-Jean and cut at right angles the road to Brussels, which the Emperor wished to take, he [Wellington] had placed 67,000 men and 184 cannons.” Fr. Libert, Waterloo

In researching this entry, I thought of
Wellington’s statement
in “Lady Caroline Lamb” —
These are the Scots Greys.”
