Quickshot Review of The Long Night by Steve Wick

I’ve a bit of disappointment to offer you today, my friends. I’d wanted my quickshot review of The Long Night: William L. Shirer and the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, by Steve Wick, to be detailed and in-depth, but I confess that I’ve found I have very little to say about it. Steve […]

Man and Mortality: Gunlord’s Quickshot Review of William L. Shirer’s Twentieth Century Journey: A Native’s Return, 1945-1988

After reading the final volume of William L. Shirer’s autobiography, I have to admit one thing above all: I don’t know if the 21st century will be as bloody and chaotic as the 20th. I’m not sure if it’ll even be as exciting. While I can hope for the latter and hope against the former, […]

As you’ll recall, my friends, last week I wanted to do a full review of William Shirer’s Twentieth Century Journey: The Start, 1904-1930.

Threats to the World in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Century: My Quickshot Review of William Shirer’s “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.”

A little late this Friday, my friends, but still within my deadline! As promised in my previous entry (well, the one before the silly MGTOW one, haha), today I’ll be giving you a quickshot review of William L. Shirer’s Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Now, one thing I forgot last time was to […]

William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler, and Me

I’m introducing something new this Friday, my friends. I call them ‘quickshot’ book reviews. Rather than full, exhaustive book reviews, these will concentrate on specific aspects of a single book and how they relate to me, meaning they’ll be fairly short—hence the name, “quickshot” J The first review will be on William L. Shirer’s The […]
