Brian Micklethwait and I discuss Victor Davis Hanson's "Why the West has Won: Nine landmark battles in the brutal history of Western victory"

Earlier on today, Brian Micklethwait and I sat down to record a podcast about Victor Davis Hanson’s Why The West Has Won: nine landmark battles in the brutal history of Western victory - the result of which you can listen to by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Summary: Yes, the West does win, there are reasons why it wins, and it’s none too nice about it.

Just in case you were wondering, the nine battles were:

Salamis
Gaugamela
Cannae
Poitiers
Tenochtitlan
Lepanto
Rorke’s Drift
Midway
Tet

We also managed (amongst other things) to mention Isandlwana.  This was a battle the British managed to lose immediately before Rorke’s Drift.
