"For armies languishing in the somnolence of peace, the critical reading of the lessons of past wars is one of the most fruitful means of seriously preparing for future conflict. While no one war has ever resembled another, the illumination of historical study has
often provided useful light with which to probe the fog of distant
battle."

-- John A. English On Infantry
