There are many things to consider as the year draws to a close. These past eleven months alone have seen a number of political catastrophes, societal problems, technical developments, and other things. As a nation, we have seen many highs and lows and even things we never imagined happening in a million years. The times are changing, and they’re changing fast. Although experiencing them can be thrilling, it’s crucial to stay informed. Similarly, it might get somewhat monotonous, if not downright dismal, to consume news in the usual manner.
So, I began reading books. I was keeping a watch on a new author whose novel felt intriguing. He has years of expertise leading the management of advisory groups at a variety of firms, according to his bio. Additionally, he has taken numerous trips across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
His work, which involved interacting with a variety of interesting people, from ministers to merchants, formed the basis for his journeys. It even led to meetings with leaders and presidents occasionally. This struck a chord with me because, in addition to his amazing research on its own, he also spoke from personal experience and provided a great deal of depth to the writing.
Som Ajir’s “Beyond D-Day Blunder” ended up being one of my favorite novels of the year.
The narrative recounts numerous important historical occurrences while also adding a creative twist. Moreover, some incidents are recounted as retellings, which adds a completely new layer and gives you a lot to ponder. Furthermore, the subdued romance is a lovely complement to the story.
I was moved to tears when reading about important historical events, and that is unquestionably a sign of a brilliant author. Reading about the Holocaust in Germany was both heartbreaking and educational. I was enthralled with the narratives of Hitler and Napoleon. However, despite the fact that he used excellent research in his writing, there’s a lot more to this book than meets the eye.
Som Ajir has effectively conducted research by speaking with several people from various societal echelons, and his literature shows that. Anyone who shares these principles and appreciates the depth of humanism and geopolitics in his writing will feel the same way I did about it.
In addition, he is extremely competent and capable due to his outstanding job history and Honorary PhD from UC Berkeley. I don’t know about you, but I will definitely be buying and supporting his next book; I’m sure of it.
