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.
