It is possible that Edgar introduced the Ship Soke, but is was certainly highlighted in Aethelred’s reign, because of the wretched situation in which he found himself. It can be a bit challenging to write but if you keep a few things in mind then you'll be more than ready to write a great science fiction story. On Bosworth field, the dramatist had engrossed the recollections due to the historian, even so early as Bishop Corbet's time; for when his host, ``full of ale and history,'' pointed out the local position of the two armies, Shakspeare was more in the village chronicler's thoughts than Stowe or Hollinshed. ``Besides what of his knowledge he could say, He had authentic notice from the play, Shown chiefly by that one perspicuous thing, That he mistook a player for a king; For when he should have said, here Richard died And call'd `a horse, a horse'---he Burbadge cried.'' A greater man acknowledged his debt to the dramatist on a similar occasion: ``In what history did your grace find that incident?'' said Burnet to the Duke of Marlborough, on hearing him quote some anecdote concerning the wars of York and Lancaster which was new to the Bishop. ``In Shakspeare's plays,'' answered the Victor of Blenheim, ---``the only history of those times I ever read.'' It may be said by the rigid worshipper of unadorned truth, that history is rather defaced than embellished by becoming the subject of fictitious composition.

So Barack Obama appears to have engaged in direct combat operations against more foreign nations than any other post–World War II president. (Let me know in a comment if I’ve missed any—history has a way of forgetting the smaller US military operations.) While the combined death tolls of his wars have probably been an order of magnitude or two lower than those of Truman, Johnson, Nixon and Bush junior, his military policy has arguably been more aggressive than Eisenhower’s, Kennedy’s, Ford’s, Carter’s or even Reagan’s (speaking strictly of direct US intervention, not the bloody Reagan Doctrine of fueling proxy wars).
