OF MAKING books about World War II there is no end, but reading them is never a weariness even when they fall flat, as this one sadly does.

Victor Davis Hanson is a classical historian who found a new, popular and lucrative career for himself as a patriotic cheerleader for the US War on Terror after the catastrophe of 9/11. His book, “The Soul of Battle” is a sheer joy, but “Carnage and Culture,” while beautifully written and a gripping read, is fundamentally utterly misleading.
