Synopsis: Gathers quotations about specific wars and battles, war in general, and famous military leaders
From Library Journal:
Wintle, coauthor of a general Dictionary of Biographical Quotations of British and American Subjects (LJ 12/1/78), has assembled over 4000 quotations offering a history of attitudes as well as behavior. Ranging from paragraphs to aphorisms, they present war's enduring mix of fascination and horror. The Dictionary is organized in three sections. Part I deals with the general nature of war. Part II comments on wars and battles from the Stone Age to the Falklands, with no significant omissions. Part III features personalities: Lysander of Sparta, Robert E. Lee, William Westmoreland. Wintle's selections are perceptive, and his attributions are accurate. A main index and an authors' index combine for easy cross-referencing. Students of war will find this an extremely useful complement to Max Hastings's Oxford Book of Military Anecdotes ( LJ 11/1/85). The Dictionary is recommended for most collections.
