Someones father, someones son, Cry for mother, cry in vain, She will never hear your plea.
Fields of glory shroud wasted lives, Above their remains carved into a cross, and dying in vain.Known unto God and blown straight to hell.We will never know who they were, We will never know who they were.We can only try to care.
We were marooned in a frozen desert.There was not a sign of life on the horizon and a thousand signs of death.
Wilfred Owen 1917When we started firing we just had to load and reload.They went down in their hundreds.You didnt have to aim.
We just fired into them.German soldier 1915Patriots always talk of dying for their country, and never killing for their country.
Our hands are earth, our bodies clay and our eyes pools of rain.We had to remove the piles of enemy bodies from before our trenches, so as to get a clear field of fire against new
waves of assault.Paul von Hindenburg 1917His bones are mingled with the filth which they scatter to the four winds.
Gerhard GutlerThe cries of the wounded had much diminished now, and as we staggered down the road, the reason was only too
apparent, for the water was right over the tops of the shell-holes.Captain Edward Vaughan, 1917The dead were stretched out on one side, one on top of each other six feet high.
I can never describe that faint
sickening, horrible smell.
Our minds were so numbed that we no longer had any scruples about the whole thing.No-mans land under snow is like the face of the moon: chaotic, crater ridden, uninhabitable, awful, the abode of
Wilfred Owen 1917Independent thinking is not encouraged in a professional army.It is a form of mutiny.Obedience is the supreme
British Prime Minister Lloyd GeorgeAnyone who says he enjoys this kind of thing is either a liar or a madman.
To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fibre of our
national life.President Woodrow WilsonWe were not making war against Germany, we were being ordered about in the Kings war with Germany.
HG Wells 1914This is the end and beginning of an age.HG Wells 1916The safest thing to be said is that nobody knew how much a decoration was worth exceptYesterday I visited the battlefield of last year.It was if the souls of the dead soldiers had come to haunt the spot where
British Officer 1919Two armies that fight each other is like one large army that commits suicide.If my own son can best serve England at this juncture by giving his life for her, I would not lift one finger to bring him
ur, courage, hallow were obscene.
Ernest Hemingway 1929 Were telling lies; we know were telling lies; we dont tell the public the truth, that were losing more officers than the
Germans.Only the dead have seen the end of war.In war time the word patriotism means suppression of truth.Siegfried Sassoon, poetSo marched into captivity all that was left of the 2nd company of the 165 Infantry regiment: two officers and 12 men.
Gefreiter Heinemann 1916I believe that the war is being deliberately prolonged by those who have the power to end it.
The brutality and inhumanity of war stood in great contrast to what I had heard and read about as a youth.Spengler 1916Men go to their deaths with curses on their lips and religion is never mentioned or thought of.Private J Bowles 1916 There were many words that you could not stand to hear and finally only the names Ernest Hemingway This is a war to end all wars.President Woodrow Wilson.
