The Greenhill Dictionary of Military Quotations Summary


The Greenhill Dictionary of Military Quotations by Peter Tsouras

Peter Tsouras brings 4,000 years of military history to life through the words of more than 800 soldiers, commanders, military theorists and commentators on war. Diverse personalities - Napoleon, Machiavelli, Ataturk, 'Che' Guevara, Rommel, Julius Caesar, Wellington, Xenophon, Crazy Horse, Wallenstein, T.E. Lawrence, Saladin, Zhukov, Eisenhower and many more - sit side by side as a result of their participation in battle across the ages. Their memorable sayings present every facet of the experience of war and incorporate the distilled wisdom of soldiers and leaders across the ages. Whether touching on the pain and suffering of war or the power and glory of battle, these quotes make exhilarating reading and an epic insight into the turbulent history of warfare and the lives and deeds of great warriors. The Greenhill Dictionary of Military Quotations is a massive compilation of nearly 6,000 martial observations and metaphors casting light not only upon the pain, suffering and sheer insanity of war, but also upon the unique comradeship and exhilaration of battle. This is a valuable addition to the literature of reference. - Alun Chalfont, The Spectator
