    The Dutch ‘Military Revolution’ During The Eighty Years War | Early-Modern Warfare

    The Dutch military reforms in the 16th and 17th century influenced the nature of European warfare strongly and lastingly. Facing the Spanish Army, the true military giant of the time, the Dutch were hard pressed to improve their own army with quick but decisive innovation. The backbone of the Spanish military dominance of the time was the so-called ‘Tercio’, a deep square formation consisting of pike men and shot infantry usually supplemented by cavalry and artillery. The basic idea was that the muskets and arquebuses shoot the enemies to pieces while the pikes provide sufficient protection from enemy cavalry attacks. But how did the Dutch counter this military goliath? Recent…

    Marriage Story: A reflection of modern divorce | IN 60 SECONDS

    Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” is less about marriage than it is about divorce, depicting the souring of what started as an amicable split between an actress and her theater-directing husband. Like 69% of divorces in the United States, the wife initiated the separation. We learned that she felt oppressed in her marriage, believing that her career and ambitions were consumed by those of her husband. But the marriage was fairly egalitarian by modern sensibilities, with both husband and wife working and sharing domestic responsibilities. This gets at what is one of the most important social issues shown in the film, though likely not Baumbach’s intention. Studies show that women on…
