A Quote by Barbara Tuchman on disillusionment, diversity, fighting, good, hope, mankind, men, nations, people, and war

When every autumn people said it could not last through the winter, and when every spring there was still no end in sight, only the hope that out of it all some good would accrue to mankind kept men and nations fighting. When at last it was over, the war had many diverse results and one dominant one transcending all others: disillusion.
