Military reform

Even the Washington Post's ahistorical, live-in-the-moment journalists are smelling the coffee :
"Imagine after the Battle of Fredericksburg, during the Civil War, if Jefferson Davis had sent Gen. Robert E. Lee a telegram saying: "You've been out there for a year now. Why don't you come back to Richmond?"
It may be hard to reform an army in war, but it has to be done.
