Paul Fussell
“Americans are the only people in the world known to me whose status anxiety prompts them to advertise their college and university affiliations in the rear window of their automobiles.”
Paul Fussell, Class: A Guide Through the American Status System

Max Hastings
“Germany’s highest commander succumbed to a disease common among senior soldiers of many nationalities and eras: he wished to demonstrate to his government and people that their vastly expensive armed forces could fulfil their fantasies.”
Max Hastings, Catastrophe 1914: Europe Goes to War

Paul Fussell
“Every war is ironic because every war is worse than expected. Every war constitutes an irony of situation because its means are so melodramatically disproportionate to its presumed ends.”
Paul Fussell, The Great War and Modern Memory
tags: truth

Paul Fussell
“If truth is the main casualty in war, ambiguity is another.”
Paul Fussell, The Great War and Modern Memory

Max Hastings
“The quirky little melodrama that unfolded in Bosnia on 28 June 1914 played the same role in the history of the world as might a wasp sting on a chronically ailing man who is maddened into abandoning a sickbed to devote his waning days to destroying the nest”
Max Hastings, Catastrophe 1914: Europe Goes to War
