The high drama of military action has produced some memorable quotes. Perhaps the most famous is the reply of modern times is that of "Nuts", Brigadier McAuliffe when asked by the Germans to surrender Bastogne. And Evelyn Waugh, watching the German invasion of Crete was heard to remark 'Like all things German, it is far too loud and goes on far too long". This treasury of military quotations covers the pithy, the callous and the practical from Alexander the Great to the Gulf War.
