~ Latin Prove
It Is Characteristic Of The Military Mentality That Nonhuman Factors Atom Bombs, Strategic Bases, Weapons Of All Sorts, The Possession Of Raw Materials, Etc Are Held Essential, While The Human Being, His Desires, And Thoughts - In Short, The Psychological Factors - Are Considered As Unimportant And Secondary... The Individual Is Degraded... To Human Materiel.

If You Tell A Lie Big Enough And Keep Repeating It, People Will Eventually Come To Believe It. The Lie Can Be Maintained Only For Such Time As The State Can Shield The People From The Political, Economic And Or Military Consequences Of The Lie. It Thus Becomes Vitally Important For The State To Use All Of Its Powers To Repress Dissent, For The Truth Is The Mortal Enemy Of The Lie, And Thus By Extension, The Truth Is The Greatest Enemy Of The State.
~ Joseph Goebbels

Therefore Anyone Who Does Not Belong To One Of The Above Named Organisations And Who Unjustifiably Nevertheless Keeps His Weapon... Must Be Regarded As An Enemy Of The National Government.
~ SA Oberfuhrer of Bad Tolz, March, 1933
Before A War, Military Science Seems A Real Science, Like Astronomy. After A War It Seems More Like Astrology.

And Now, Like The Old Soldier Of That Ballad, I Now Close My Military Career, And Just Fade Away... An Old Soldier Who Tried To Do His Duty, As God Gave Him The Light To See That Duty. Good-bye.
~ Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Farewell address, quoted on "We Interrupt This Broadcast" CD- ROM
During The Second World War, The Germans Took Four Years To Build The Atlantic Wall. On Four Beaches It Held Up The Allies For About An Hour; At Omaha It Held Up The U. S. For Less Than One Day. The Atlantic Wall Must Therefore Be Regarded As One Of The Greatest Blunders In Military History.
~ Stephen Ambrose, D- Day, page 577
