A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on pride


"Not in vain" may be the pride of those who survived and the epitaph of those who fell. The eight thousand paratroopers of the First British Airborne Division who landed in Arnhem, Holland, behind the German lines and held the area for nine days and nights, with a loss of six thousand. [September 1944] Major General R. E. Urquhart, the division commander radioed to Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery: All will be ordered to break out rather than surrender.
