“After the Battle of Waterloo, Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington—who managed to defeat Napoleon by the skin of his teeth—surveyed the blood-soaked cornfields of Belgium and wrote in a letter, “Nothing except a battle lost can be half as melancholy as a battle won.”
Chris Pourteau, Tales of B-Company: The Complete Collection

“Her response was what she named B-Company’s shark strategy: keep moving or die.”

“Stug felt pieces of metal thump into the body he held up in front of him. He was starting to like this tactic of recycling dead porters for body shields.”
