Good advice for those who want to prevail in war…

General William Tecumseh Sherman

General William Tecumseh Sherman

“In accepting war, it should be “pure and simple” as applied to the belligerents.  I would keep it so, till all traces of the war are effaced; till those who appealed to it are sick and tired of it, and come to the emblem of our nation, and sue for peace.  I would not coax them, or even meet them half-way, but make them so sick of war that generations would pass away before they would again appeal to it.” ― Sherman, Memoirs, by William Tecumseh Sherman, The Library of America, ©1990 by Literary Classics of the United States, Inc., New York, NY, Page 365.
