Synopsis

The distilled wisdom of soldiers, politicians and military historians in one volume Military experience from 2000 BC to the present day Peter Tsouras brings 4,000 years of military history to life through the words of soldiers, commanders, military theorists and commentators on war. Diverse personalities - Napoleon, Machiavelli, Ataturk, 'Che' Guevara, Rommel, Julius Caesar, Wellington, Xenophon, Crazy Horse, Wallenstein, T. E. Lawrence, Saladin, Zhukov, Eisenhower and many more - sit side by side. Their memorable sayings present every facet of the experience of war and incorporate the distilled wisdom of soldiers and leaders across the ages. Whether touching on the pain and suffering of war or the power and glory of battle, these quotes make exhilarating reading and provide an illuminating insight into the turbulent history of warfare and the lives and deeds of great warriors. The Daily Telegraph Dictionary of Military Quotations is a huge compilation of martial observations and metaphors which casts light not only upon the carnage and sheer brutality of war, but also upon the unique comradeship and exhilaration that arises from battle.
