From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Toby is getting pretty interested in a map of Namur, and, as he learns about the battle, he starts to like it. Really like it. At the end of a year, he's gathered up maps of towns all through Italy. The next year he digs deeper, reading book after book about military strategy and building.
As the third year begins, he starts to study projectiles and goes all the way back to Galileo to refresh his geometry.
It's time to step away from the book, Toby. Tristram lays the smackdown on his obsessed uncle, since too much knowledge will only confuse a man and make him grow old before his time.
