The History Network
Recommended by: David A
Dry, serious and unstintingly fascinating, the History Network's military essays range from the Battle of Thermopylae to Stonewall Jackson and beyond.
The site is adding 'podtrails' - London walking guides that will allow peacenik history buffs to immerse themselves in the background of an area. However, war is what this site is really about.
"In its field, this is an unsurpassed source of information and insight," writes David A.

"These brief interviews with notable contemporary philosophers are accessible and informal, and usually less than 20 minutes long," writes MJP.
You don't need to be an academic to appreciate these talks, which are on a variety of ethical and moral topics. They are accompanied by Amazon links to related texts (frequently written by the interviewee). Armchair ethicists will find plenty to mull over.
