Quote of the Day for 2016-04-29

"Most armies are in fact run by their sergeants—the officers are there just to give things a bit of tone and prevent warfare from becoming a mere lower-class brawl."

Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) The Carpet People, chapter 16 (1971)

British soldiers marching into Colesberg, South Africa during the Second Boer War (December 31, 1901)
