Revised and expanded to include over 1,200 quotations, The Military Quotation Book brings together the wisdom of fallen heroes and living politicians, honored statesmen and rebellious writers-quoting official edicts as well as off-the-record remarks.

Ten years ago, with World War II, Korea and Vietnam still sharp memories, James Charlton collected words of wisdom about the work of war, usually wise, often witty, all honoring the men and women who do that work. Although this new and expanded edition of The Military Quotation Book was readied for production before U.S. fighters were once more front-page news, it comes at a more than appropriate time. There are over 1,200 quotations, more than twice as many as previously. We hear from the generals and admirals of the past and present, from American presidents as well as from those at the bottom of the roster -- ordinary enlisted men and women from every branch. Civilians have their varying says as well. This gem of a book is a kaleidoscope of points of view, and every one hits its mark.

For everyone who has his or her own take on the military, for history buffs, speechmakers, veterans and those serving now, The Military Quotation Book is a loaded canon of memorable expressions.
