Your quote is very true. I was watching this series about World War I, and the people who started the war caused so much suffering with their fatuous nonsense. They were the kind of military men “who were very energetic and very stupid”. Napoleon said he would shoot that type of officer. These officers made their men go marching in snowy mountains wearing cardboard shoes with wooden soles. One general took his army into some very cold weather wearing summer uniforms, and a hundred-thousand of them froze to death. They had battles where tens of thousands of soldiers were killed. That’s not killed and wounded. That’s killed. Some people characterized World War I as “lions lead by donkeys”. I’m sorry I got on my soapbox. I was just doing some venting.
