Openness gives you a tan

While sitting in the lunch room of my temporary study at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, I found news in the local free paper Urban about Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman's new book on the Falklands War. Freedman (with whom I studied Conduct of Contemporary Warfare) has had full access to Ministry of Defence's archives and all the new information has captivated the mind of Copenhagen's local Newpaper hacks. Aint that nice?

On another note, the new comprehensive history of Danish Foreign Policy has had unlimited access to the Foreign Ministry's archives, providing a fascinating read on contemporary history.

It makes it worthwhile sitting inside...
