Video / July 13, 2020

SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER: http://eepurl.com/gdR76X . This month we are reading Silk Roads: A New History of the World by Peter Frankopan. Last month I traveled to Uzbekistan to film a new travel vlog series for Vagabrothers, and this book was a huge inspiration for our trip. Here’s episode 1 of that series: If you’re watching the vlogs from Uzbekistan, this book will be the perfect companion for those who want a deeper dive into the history of the great Silk Road Cities like Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, and Tashkent, and the many soldiers, merchants and emperors who passed through – from Marco Polo to Alexander the Great, and Genghis Khan to Timurlane.

“Arnhem” by Antony Beevor Book Review
Video / July 11, 2020

Antony Beevor’s book “Arnhem” is good – but it contains a flawed argument. So flawed, that there’s a ton of counter evidence that shows it doesn’t work. Here, I will explain the events of the Nijmegen battle, what Beevor’s incorrect statement is, why he has to say it like he did, and how he could have done things differently.

The Scout Rifle Study: A Book Review and Critique of the Scout Rifle Concept
Video / May 18, 2020

Available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2KAkv45 Let me preface this by saying that I remain a big fan of the Scout Rifle concept and the Steyr Scout in particular. When I ordered a copy of Richard Mann’s “The Scout Rifle Study”, I was hoping to find a critical assessment of the concept. I was hoping to see pros and cons of the forward-mounted optic in particular, and the inclusion of an AR-10 on the cover made me think that there might be serious discussion of the modern lightweight self loading rifle in the context of the Scout Rifle concept. Basically, I was hoping for a book that would independently critique Cooper’s concept, and bring fact-based conclusions about where it was suitable or unsuitable. Instead, the book is much more a compilation of the primary source material of the Scout Rifle, as a one-stop-shop for those who are already happily convinced that it is a universal general-purpose rifle needing no defense. If the Scout Rifle is considered a cult, this book would be its Nicene Creed, not its Ninety-Five Theses. Of course, for the person who is a devotee of the concept, this is a great book, compiling all of Cooper’s original definitions…

Jive Book Review: Odin’s Wife (Frigg and Jord)
Video / April 18, 2020

Is Odin’s wife Frigg the same as his lover Jord the Earth goddess? William P. Reaves thinks they are the same figure and that her cult survived in to recent times among German peasants who called her Frau Holda. I will briefly review his book on the subject here.

Ian Reviews the Greatest Book Ever: Chassepot to FAMAS
Video / March 12, 2020

Available only direct from Headstamp Publishing: https://www.headstamppublishing.com/french-rifle-book I am very excited to finally be able to formally present to you Chassepot to FAMAS: French Military Rifles 1866-2016! After about 3 years of work, it’s finally here and shipping. My goal with this book was to create a reference guide that would allow someone to identify any French military rifle they would encounter, be it in museums, gun shows, auction, and collections.It covers military rifle designed and built in France, and has 10 chapters comprising more than 530 pages: Chassepot, Gras, Kropatschek, Lebel, Berthier, RSC, MAS 36, MAS semiauto, FR, and FAMAS. within each chapter is a history of the design, variations, markings, production dates and totals, combat use, bayonets, mechanics, and more. The photography is outstanding, and it really shows. James Rupley’s efforts in that area have made it the best-looking firearms reference book ever published, if I may be so bold as to make that claim. This is not a typical book full of dark black-and-white photos. While there are a few other books in English on French rifles, none is even remotely close to the scope of mine. This is a must-have resource for anyone interested in French…

Todd Gordon’s 800 Guidebooks – Classic Climbing Book Review episode #1
Video / February 29, 2020

This is the first episode of “Classic Climbing Book Review”, a new series where we’ll be taking deep dives into old rock climbing guidebooks and literature.  Like most climbers I have a love for guidebooks that started when I got my very first one.  Reading the stories, learning the history and getting psyched on rad photos before weekends and trips is a ritual.  Similar to many things in life, the anticipation can be half of the fun. From a historical perspective, rock climbing guidebooks are time capsules from eras gone by that provide deep insights into the culture of their time, and I find that fascinating.  I reached out to Todd Gordon, who has the biggest guidebook collection of anyone I know, and he graciously offered to let me borrow some of his books for the series.  When I went over to his house we ended up shooting a little footage of him sharing his collection and that has become this first episode.  Todd has got to be one of the nicest legends to ever do the damn thing and I can’t thank him enough for his hospitality and for sharing his collection. Here is a link where you can…
