Requiem for a Showman

Filed under: General — m759 @ 8:15 AM

"Bowden applied what he viewed as the lessons of the battlefield
to the football field. While bedridden with rheumatic fever at age 13,
he had listened to radio broadcasts telling of World War II battles,
and he later studied the campaigns of Patton, MacArthur and
Germany’s Erwin Rommel.

'They all demonstrate discipline,' Bowden once said, 'and that you
need reserves so that if you’re getting annihilated on one front, you
can attack somewhere else.' ” — Richard Goldstein


See as well "Geometry Battlefield" in this morning's previous post.
