More From Barbara Tuchman
- "Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill."
- "The fleet sailed to its war base in the North Sea, headed not so much for some rendezvous with glory as for rendezvous with discretion."
- "To a historian libraries are food, shelter, and even muse."
More In War
- "War is big and there are only so many reporters and only so many places for their words and images to appear. Choices are made constantly."― Bruce Jackson
- "For far too long we’ve allowed the other side to paint us as racist, as sexist, inhumane war mongers – well, today as a conservative black Republican and former solider, I’m here to set that record straight."― Allen West
- "In time it will become clear to everyone that support for the policies of pre-emptive war and interventionist nation-building will have much greater significance than the removal of Saddam Hussein itself."― Ron Paul
