LEARN | IN FLANDERS FIELD
‘In Flanders Fields’ is a war poem written by First World War Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel, John McCrae. McCrae writes of the Poppies we now recognize as a symbol for soldiers who have died in combat, and specifically for Memorial Day.
Colonel Boyd is one of the most profound thinkers regarding warfare, but his impact reaches far beyond the battlefield. Boyd posed the theory of the OODA Loop (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) which permeates boardrooms and athletic training facilities around the globe. Coram’s book reveals where it all began and paints an intriguing picture of an Air Force Colonel, hell-bent on improving an archaic institution.
