The Military Quotation Book by James Charlton
Revised and expanded to include over 1200 quotations, The Military Quotation Book brings together the wisdom of fallen heroes and living politicians, honoured statesmen and their rebellious writers - quoting official edicts as well as off-the-record remarks. Among the most authoritative - and the most opinionated are: General Douglas MacArthur - "It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it." Winston Churchill - "Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities. Stalin - "Everyone imposes his own system as far as his army can reach." Voltaire - "An admiral has to put to death now and then to encourage the others. Dwight D. Eisenhower - "Nothing is easy in war." Franklin D. Roosevelt - "A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough." For everyone who loves the military - for history buffs, speechmakers, veterans, and anyone in active military service - The Military Quotation Book is a loaded canon of memorable expressions.
