But the realities of our world are far different from those of warriors past; at least they appear to be on the surface The circumstances have changed. In the past a warrior knew his enemy.

The culmination of years of research by the late Peter Robins, the biography of W.E. Fairbairn, "the father of CQB" has been published.

Entitled " Fairbairn The Gentleman Warrior" this first volume covers his early life, the Shanghai years, up until the start of WW/5(4). George Washington: Gentleman Warrior is extremely well written and details how Washington became the ultimate gentleman warrior at a time America needed his style of leadership the most.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in American history and hope it becomes a must read book in schools across the country.

Well Done!/5(49). It is also an effective portrait of Washington as an English gentleman. The book is in-depth and lengthy, but certainly worth reading. Brumwells writing is vivid and gives the reader a great sense of how I think Edward Lengel’s General George Washington: A Military Life remains the best study of Washington’s military career/5.
