“In peace prepare for war, in war prepare for peace. The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence under no circumstances can it be neglected.”
– Sun Tzu
Welcome to a new Category of posts, Quote of the Day. I’m deliberately not calling this daily quotes as I may not post them every day, but I cannot think of a more appropriate quote to kick off with on Armed Forces Day. While I may not agree with the political decisions to go to war oftentimes, I have nothing but the highest respect for those who serve professionally and with distinction in any sort of military role in the UK and around the world.
