German Soldiers

Famous quotes containing the words german and/or soldiers:

    How much atonement is enough? The bombing must be allowed as at least part-payment: those of our young people who are concerned about the moral problem posed by the Allied air offensive should at least consider the moral problem that would have been posed if the German civilian population had not suffered at all.
    Clive James (b. 1939)

    How red the rose that is the soldier’s wound,
    The wounds of many soldiers, the wounds of all
    The soldiers that have fallen, red in blood,
    The soldier of time grown deathless in great size.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
