Book Description

7 Nov 2012
"Artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be an ugly brawl." Frederick the Great "I am the Flail of God… If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you". Genghis Khan "Everyone's a pacifist between wars. It's like being a vegetarian between meals." Colman McCarthy From Churchill to Sitting Bull, and from Agincourt to the Khyber Pass, history is rich in rousing rhetoric, inspiring quotations and heroic speeches from the most celebrated military leaders, writers and observers. Whether applauding great victories or standing firm against the horrors and injustices of war, the quotations and stories of this collection will take the reader on a roller-coaster ride through the many unique experiences of military history.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read 7 Mar 2013
By Holly
A thought-provoking and Insightful book that you can read from cover to cover in one go or pick up just when you want to dip into another world. It rekindled my love of history which I'd lost a little bit since university and I found myself wanting to read more from many of the figures quoted.

The short stories were a real bonus and kept the book lighthearted and moving along at just the right pace.

I'd thoroughly recommend it!

3.0 out of 5 stars There are others that are better 22 Oct 2013
By Dave English - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love books of quotations, and this is a nice looking product. Smaller size, a little bigger than two packs of cards. Good quality production. But the quotes are listed in alphabetical order by author only. So no index or subject or time classification. Oh. And there are already several larger, fairly recent, compilations of military quotes on the market.

It's nice to pick up and glance at. But it's no use for research or to follow ideas or concepts. Hope this helps.
