BeschreibungExcerpt from The Business of War
In the glamour of battle heroism the world loses sight of the mechanics of war. It is more thrilling to have an emotion about a forlorn trench hope led to victory than to hear about a supply column that reached the front under a storm of shells. Yet the courage of the teamsters who face death with only the reins in their hands is fit to rank with the valour of the fighting men armed with guns.
War has become a business. It is the world's supreme task at this moment. "Business as usual" has gone into the scrap heap along with many other illusions that clogged effort and begot a costly optimism in the early days of the conflict. The one definite work of civilization is to win the war. The path to victory is through organization.
No military establishment presents such a picture of close-knit endeavour as the British Army. The immortal First Seven Divisions who dashed to the relief of Belgium and laid the first Anglo-Saxon sacrifice on the Altar of Freedom were the nucleus of the mighty host on which the sun never sets to-day.
