He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious.

Arthur is not even a king; he is referred to as “Arthur the soldier” in the Historia Brittonum, which was compiled around 800 (4). King Arthur is not culturally important to the Romans who were writing these stories initially, they are writing about him as a historical aberration or an idle curiosity. Later stories were told by people to whom Arthur was a symbol of a golden age to which their people might someday return, not as a lowly soldier who may not have existed who chased the Romans out of England centuries ago. This Arthur is unknown, unimportant, and so whatever items he may or may not have had with him also do not matter.
In 432 BC, the Peloponnesian League voted that Athens had broken the terms of the Thirty Year Peace. Finally, Sparta issued an ultimatum to Athens, stating that there would be war unless Athens lifted economic sanctions on Megara (which had defected to the Spartan side fifteen years after its battle with Corinth) and stopped the military blockage of Potidaea.
