    Summary

    All actions in war take place in an atmosphere of uncertainty, or the "fog of war." Uncertainty pervades battle in the form of unknowns about the enemy, about the environment, and even about the friendly situation. While we try to reduce these unknowns by gathering information, we must realize that we cannot eliminate them—or even come close. The very nature of war makes certainty impossible; all actions in war will be based on incomplete, inaccurate, or even contradictory information.

    Having said this, we realize that it is precisely those actions that seem improbable that often have the greatest impact on the outcome of war.

    Summary

    Arthur’s treehouse was the same as Merlin remembered it, all of it was. Maybe a little smaller, but then everything was, now.

    And then there was Arthur himself; and it wasn't so much that a lot had changed about him, not really, it was only that everything had lengthened and broadened and become more.

    “It’s been a week and a half since you were taken. Five days since we got you back.” Loki felt a peculiar lurch in his chest. Ten days, lost . . . It had all blurred together into a haze of pain and hate and then despair.

    Victor von Doom was dead. He couldn’t come back to cut Loki apart again. Loki's new enemy was his own mind.

    The throng of Buffalo's society parts like the red sea, yielding the floor to Thomas and the young woman on his arm, and Lucille knows it immediately: they have chosen poorly.
