My argument is that War makes rattling good history; but Peace is poor reading. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

hello, After reading some of Hardy’s book “The Dynasts : An Epic-Drama of War with Napoleon” (1904, 1906, 1908) I am beginning to wonder about some of these quotes and who actually gets to choose where the aphorism starts and finishes. Because if they are taken out of ‘interconnexion’ with say values, or, is it just left up to the law of the jungle. Anything goes, within reason of course, and I suppose the quote maker for the use of a better word. Would have some significance or reason for it’s wording. Furthermore life forces that have left their stamp on humanity throughout history’s literature, from which they are chosen . In this case ‘Hardy’ and the topic being ‘war history.’ For instance consider ‘war comics’ where a big hit some years ago and probably still have a following. Even now with war increasingly becoming commuter simulated, it’s fashionable appeal and technological breakthroughs that even the internet could trace it humble beginning back to, the military establishment. So as Churchill once said “We shall never surrender.”
