War and Conflict Quotations: A Worldwide Dictionary of Pronouncements from Military Leaders, Politicians, Philosophers, Writers and Others
History is replete with pronouncements on war. Some reflect on man's warlike nature (We are quick to flare up, we races of men on the earth--Homer); others deal with the practical strategies of the combatants (If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons--Winston Churchill); and still others offer advice for avoiding conflict (The most disadvantageous peace is better than the most just war--Desiderius Erasmus).
Over 2,700 quotations on war and conflict are presented in this reference work. The quotations are arranged by over 100 broad categories, from action to winning. For each, the quotation is first given, followed by its author, the work in which it appeared (when appropriate), and the date. The book includes numerous cross-references, and keyword-in-context and author indexes are provided for further utility.
