Started listening to the audiobook for “An Army at Dawn” which covers the North African campaign in WW2. Been interesting to far as it’s something I don’t know much about.
It’s pretty hilarious hearing the people at the time complain that the American recruits, the “quote unquote greatest generation”, are a bunch of soft, unruly, leftists that could never make a proper army.
It’s always a bit funny how cyclical so many aspects of history are, and what a constant the olds complaining about the indulgences of the youths are throughout all of history.

Point of order: there are at minimum 3 dynasties before the Qin so calling Qin Shi Huang "the first Emperor of China" is incorrect.
