      Would it not be more productive to have actual books with African writers or just African themes? The title is misleading. While some people think it is healthy to read about military craft from other races I am of the opposite opinion. African societies lost many battles due to inadequate arms not because of bravery nor strategy, well may be strategy since you would have thought African people would have united under the basic fact that they are Black and African. Dr. Chanellor Williams spoke about this in his book "The Destruction of Black Civilization".

      The lead statement I wrote states: Time To DEVELOP An Afrocentric Military Reading List. Nowhere does it say that the list appended is an AFROCENTRIC READING LIST. The Reading List I posted is as it states the Marine Core Reading List. An example of the type of reading that is being done to maintain the Military Opression of Afrikans. The lead statement is a DECLARATIVE STATEMENT of what we need to do, if it has not already been done.

      I can think of some purposes of an Afrikan centered military reading list, but I'll wait for @Dukuzumurenyi 's response.
