Air warfare is a shot through the brain, not a hacking to pieces of the enemy's body.
J. F. C. Fuller
It is absolutely true in war, were other things equal, that numbers, whether men, shells, bombs, etc., would be supreme. Yet it is also absolutely true that other things are never equal and can never be equal.
J. F. C. Fuller
In the World War nothing was more dreadful to witness than a chain of men starting with a battalion commander and ending with an army commander sitting in telephone boxes, improvised or actual, talking, talking, talking, in place of leading, leading, leading.
J. F. C. Fuller
National armies fight nations, royal armies fight their like, the first obey a mob, always demented and the second a king, generally sane.
J. F. C. Fuller

J. F. C. Fuller
