Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This anthology draws its material from 4000 years of reflection on war. The authors range from Clausewitz and Napoleon to otherwise obscure junior officers. Most of them are soldiers, and most are part of the Western military heritage. The quotations are well chosen overall, but the work's primary value lies in its structure. The entries are grouped under almost 350 separate subject headings: concepts and topics such as Danger, Imagination, and Will. This detailed organization is a welcome contrast to Justin Wintle's Dictionary of War Quotations ( LJ 3/1/90), facilitating access to the aphorisms for specialists and nonspecialists alike. A biographical index of contributors enhances the user-friendliness of a volume that belongs in most public and private collections on military history.-- D.E. Showalter, U.S. Air Force Acad., Colorado Springs

This specialized compilation includes quotations from more than 250 military personalities who represent almost 4,000 years of military history. Unlike Trevor Royle's "Dictionary of Military Quotations" (Simon & Schuster, 1989), this source quotes only those who have "exercised the profession of arms." While some individuals--Napoleon Bonaparte, Douglas MacArthur, Julius Caesar--are routinely found in such sources as Bartlett's "Familiar Quotations", other more obscure choices, such as Zhuge Liang and Saladin, are included here. Tsouras has authored other books on military history, and this compilation draws upon his wide knowledge of the sources written by soldiers The quotations are divided into approximately 350 subject areas. These do not include any proper names or names of particular battles or campaigns. Standard headings such as "Bravery" and "Loyalty" appear, as well as the concepts "Strike Weakness", "Economy of Force", and "River Defence". The topic "War" is divided into 12 subheadings. For each quotation, the entry lists author, title, date of the source, and, when appropriate, translator; pagination is not included. Complete publication details appear in a select bibliography in the back of the book Quoted individuals are further identified in a biographical index of sources that provides brief summaries of military careers. This index--the only one included in the work--also provides references to the page numbers where quotations from the individual can be found "Warrior's Words" was compiled to assist and enlighten military professionals and enthusiasts, and the book should be included in collections that serve these clienteles. It is also appropriate for libraries that extensively collect quotation books.

Broad in subject matter and in the scope of its sources, encompasses quotes from leaders in ancient Egypt to those of modern times who have expressed their thinking on the themes of comradeship, bravery, and luck. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
