An Open Letter to Master Yim (The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang)

a brain fart on writing war into existence and historiography in fantasy novels: Master Yim is the professor of history at Sinegard, a military academy and THE top school of R. F. Kuang's trilogy The Poppy War. This letter covers events of the first book only, as I am too much of a wimp to dive into The Dragon Republic without getting everything off my chest.
