"Soldiers die in largest numbers when they run, because it is when they turn their backs to the enemy that they are least able to defend themselves....Men fight...from fear: fear of the consequences 1st of not fighting, then of not fighting well."

"While Caesar is writing particular history, Thucydides is writing general history, by every test a more useful, a more difficult and a more illuminating form of art."

"The Roman defeat at Cannae that helped to precipitate the First World War....it was probably Caesar who most influenced the way in which military history was written from the Renaissance onwards."
