Description
From the Trojan War to World War II, war has produced some of the most eloquent statements uttered by man. Complete with rich, historical sidebars, this chronological record of battle-tested wisdom delves into the human side of greatness to reveal the often-forgotten context behind such heroic quotes as "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition". "Don't fire 'til you see the whites of their eyes", and hundreds more.

The result is a truly unique and spellbinding resource as applicable to the chronicles of war as it is to the challenges of contemporary leadership. A book of courage, wit, and passion guaranteed to inspire and enlighten.
