New Chesterton book

G.K. Chesterton's poem, Lepanto, is available fully annotated and with pages of scholarship from the American Chesterton Society.

Lepanto is the story of the Battle of Lepanto, where the whole of Christendom prayed the rosary for the defeat of the Ottoman fleet. We beat'em; long odds, too. It drove the Ottomans into their steady decline, and saved Rome from being sacked by Muslims. The day of the victory, October 7, is now the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. If not for Lepanto, you'd probably be living in a Muslim country right now.

As a bonus, the poem is really tough on Protestants, pacifists, and Mohammed.
