A Quote by William Tecumseh Sherman on glory, hell, vengeance, and war

I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot, nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.

William Tecumseh Sherman (1820 - 1891)
