A wry and telling commentary on mankind and it's history.

This short, nominated for the Academy Award, is a sardonic look at history and effectively makes a few points about the ultimate realities and who the victors really are. Very well done and well worth the effort to get. Fortunately in print currently. Most highly recommended.
