"I am the Flail of God...If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you". (Genghis Khan). "Everyone's a pacifist between wars. It's like being a vegetarian between meals". (Colman McCarthy).

Whether applauding great victories or standing firm against the horrors and injustices of war, the quotations and stories of this collection will take the reader on a roller-coaster ride through the many unique experiences of military history.
