Check out the trailer for episode 10: Clearing Hell – the Battle of Iwo Jima part 3. Notice the extensive use of flamethrowers. Because of the difficult terrain, which often mitigated the effective use of tanks, the Marines relied on flamethrowers. You can see them in action on Iwo Jima in the trailer footage. Below the trailer, a Marine tells the story of what it was like to wield the flamethrower on Iwo Jima.

Chris wants… Continue reading Coming Soon: Episode 9 – Storming Hell; The Battle of Iwo Jima part 2

It’s time for philosopher versus philosopher. This month we have American John Dewey, firmly representing America’s faith in progress, versus Niccolò Machiavelli, representing political realism. Both men are smart. Both men are rational. They proceed from what the Japanese would call two different “ways.” It is precisely their unproven beginning points, what Van Til would… Continue reading Philosopher Vs. Philosopher
