O flower of Scotland, when will we see your like again, That fought and died for your wee bit hill and glen And stood against him, proud Edward's army, And sent him homeward tae think again.
A few days after our arrival in this village, Spiro Milio presented himself to Mavrocordato, with a corps of two hundred picked Chimariots, the most martial-looking men in the whole Army. They are not to be distinguished from Albanians, their dress and language being perfectly similar; but though their religion is Greek, they do not? understand one syllable of Greek.
The general verdict among the German generals I interrogated in 1945 was that Field-Marshal von Manstein had proved the ablest commander in their Army, and the man they had most desired to become its Commander-in-Chief. It is very clear that he had a superb sense of operational possibilities and equal mastery in the conduct of operations, together with a greater grasp of the potentialities of mechanized forces than any other commander who had not been trained in the tank arm. In sum, he had military genius.erich von manstein
Nothing can be more hurtful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one Army the superiority over another.george washington
The Sixth Army, true to their oath and conscious of the lofty importance of their mission, have held their position to the last man and the last round for Führer and Fatherland unto the end.friedrich paulus
As a soldier who has spent a quarter of his life in the study of the science of arms, let me tell you I went into the British Army believing that if you want peace you must prepare for war. I believe now that if you prepare thoroughly and efficiently for war, you get war.
By seizing the formerly little-known Height 102.0 – the Mamayev Hill - the Red Army fought its way to the fascists' den – Berlin. We are proud to say that our victory in Stalingrad radically changed the whole situation in the Second World War. And this victory meant that our Motherland had withstood one of the most difficult tests in its history.aleksandr vasilevsky
The Soviet Republic needs an Army that will be able to fight and conquer.
I was a kind of a one-man Army. I could solder circuits together, I could turn out things on the lathe, I could work with rockets and balloons. I'm a kind of a hybrid between an engineer and a physicist and astronomer."james van allen
England’s made a Jew of me in only eight weeks, which, on reflection, might be the least painful method. A Jew without Jews, without Judaism, without Zionism, without Jewishness, without a temple or an Army or even a pistol, a Jew clearly without a home, just the object itself, like a glass or an apple.philip roth
Since the liberation of the ancient city of Timbuktu by the French Army “operation serval” important leaders visited the historic city all focus on development, rebuilding, and restoration of its ancient historic sites.
Alarmed by the famine of 1770, captain John Garstin built this huge granary Golghar for the British Army in 1786. The massive structure is 29 m high and the walls are 3.6 m wide at the base. The winding stairway around this monument offers a brilliant panoramic view of the city and the Ganga flowing by.
Before a standing Army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe.noah webster
When Mussolini decided on war he did not take my advice or that of any other Army chief. In August 1939 the Duce had not been so sure about the invincibility of the Germans, and he told us that he had sought to persuade Hitler not to act.pietro badoglio
As the rising sun melts thinly frozen ice, so the Japanese Army is overcoming Chinese troops.shunroku hata
There is the view that poetry should improve your life. I think people confuse it with the Salvation Army.john ashbery
This fantastic state of mind, of a humanity that has outrun its ideas, is matched by a political scene in the grotesque style, with Salvation Army methods, hallelujahs and bell-ringing and dervishlike repetition of monotonous catchwords, until everybody foams at the mouth. Fanaticism turns into a means of salvation, enthusiasm into epileptic ecstasy, politics becomes an opiate for the masses, a proletarian eschatology; and reason veils her face.thomas mann
The Army influences everything I do. Certainly it teaches you discipline, which is a necessary element of development. I think there's more of a collaborative understanding in the band because of that.maynard james keenan
With this recitation of paraphernalia and detritus, O'Brien manages to encapsulate the experience of an Army and of a particular war, of a mined and booby-trapped landscape, of cold nights and hot days, of soaking monsoons and rice paddies, and of the possibility of being shot, like Ted Lavender, suddenly and out of nowhere: not only in the middle of a sentence but in the midst of a subordinate clause.francine prose
I am very, very sorry for the lives lost in Iraq. I think it was a very noble job that your Army and your people did in Iraq.jalal talabani
I have in my head a whole Army of people pleading to be let out and awaiting my commands.Anton Chekhov
Every friend of freedom... must be as revolted as I am by the prospect of turning the United States into an armed camp, by the vision of jails filled with casual drug users and of an Army of enforcers empowered to invade the liberty of citizens on slight evidence.Milton Friedman
For the Army is a school in which the miser becomes generous, and the generous prodigal; miserly soldiers are like monsters, but very rarely seen.Miguel de Cervantes
Like wow, these people are really beautiful, the cops, the storekeepers, the Army, everybody.
