9781592288144: Quotable Soldier

"The book provides familiar and not-so-familiar sayings that capture the chaos, challenges, and sacrifices of war."--Army magazine

The Quotable Soldier is a rich and balanced collection of the best quotations about war and those who go to war. From Thucydides to General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, here are the reasons men go to war, the challenge of human courage, the strategy of great battles and campaigns, the horrors of war, and much more. The Quotable Soldier includes comments about the battles of ancient times, through the Napoleonic and World Wars, and on into the complicated conflicts of Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. This is one of the most compelling, challenging, and comprehensive collections of quotes about war and soldiering ever assembled.

The perfect gift for any soldier, veteran, or war buff, The Quotable Soldier is a compulsively readable collection of some of the most illuminating observations ever made about war.

Review:

As the old saying goes, "War is hell." But it's much more than that, as The Quotable Soldier reveals. This collection of quotations about war and soldiering is organized loosely by theme: "The Call to Battle," "Under Fire," "At Ease," "The Fallen," and so on. The comments date from ancient times to Desert Storm. They come from historic battlefields, including Thermopylae, Bunker Hill, Waterloo, the Somme, Iwo Jima, and Chosin Reservoir; and they were made by such famous battle-tested figures as Sun Tzu, Philip of Macedon, Clara Barton, Robert E. Lee, Winston Churchill, and Norman Schwarzkopf, among many others. Some were selected for their inspirational quality (Garibaldi's "Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me"); others for their irony ("They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance"--Union Major General John Sedgwick, just moments before a Confederate sharpshooter's bullet struck him under the left eye, killing him instantly); and still others for their gritty accounts of what it was like to be under fire.

Perfect for browsing, The Quotable Soldier is a great little book for fans of military history. --M. Stein
