I was tagged by Rowan over at Fortify Your Oasis. The rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
1) Oddly is Strategy (Second Revised Edition) by BH Liddell Hart 
2) The sixth, seventh and eight sentences on page 123 read:
If this be true, it forms an ironical final triumph for the strategy of indirect approach and its decisive ‘pull’.
In 1815, after his return from Elba, the size of Napoleon’s forces seems to have sent the blood to his head gain. Nevertheless, in his own fashion he used both surprise and mobility,and in consequence came within reach f a decisive result.
And I tag in turn: Trifles, American President’s Blog, History is Elementary, David, and Declan.
Nice day after the rain,
