Description

A "massive [and] valuable" collection of quotes about war from soldiers, commanders, strategists, and others (The Spectator).

This volume brings four thousand years of military history to life through the words of more than eight hundred diverse personalities -- Napoleon, Machiavelli, Atatürk, Che Guevara, Rommel, Julius Caesar, Wellington, Xenophon, Crazy Horse, Wallenstein, T.E. Lawrence, Saladin, Zhukov, Eisenhower and many more -- to build a comprehensive picture of war across the ages.

Broken down into more then 480 categories, including courage, danger, failure, leadership, luck, military intelligence, tactics, training, guerrilla warfare and victory, this definitive guide draws on the collected wisdom of those who have experienced war at every level. From the brutality and suffering of war, to the courage and camaraderie of soldiers, to the glory and exhilaration of battle, these quotes offer an insight into the turbulent history of warfare and the lives and deeds of great warriors.

"A massive compilation 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." -- The Spectator
