Warriors’ Words: A Quotation Book: From Sesostris III to Schwarzkopf 1871 BC to AD 1991 Peter G. Tsouras


As warfare has brought forth outstanding deeds and diverse dreams, it has also conspired to create in the mouths of those involved in combat some of the most poignant and perceptive words ever spoken. Apart from the insight into, and record of, despair and determination, this book surveys a multitude of emotions which are part of life in peace as well as in war. The book excludes civilian comment to focus exclusively on the words of soldiers and military men. Over 100 people are quoted and the book contains 11,000 quotes covering 350 subjects, 4000 years of history and 400,000 words.
