Страница 24 - Now, at least, and perhaps as long as man dwells upon the globe, his destiny is battle, and he has to take the chances of war. If it is our business to fight, the book for the army is a war-song, not a hospital-sketch. It is not well for soldiers to think much about wounds. Sooner or later we shall fall ; but meantime it is for us to fix our eyes upon the point to be stormed, and to get there if we can.
Страница 1 - To speak the truth is not enough; there must be a steadying judgment as to when it should be spoken, and to whom it should be addressed. A truth need not only be well-rounded, but the utterance of it should take account of the stresses and objectives of the moment. Truth becomes falsehood unless it has the strength of perspective. The presentation of facts is self-justifying only when the facts are- developed in their true proportion. Said the soldier Cromwell to the artist doing his portrait : "Yes,...
Страница 8 - That if in any issue or presentation space or time is allotted to editorials, columns, or other argumentative matter supporting a political party which has a candidate for President in at least six States in the current Presidential election, an equal amount of space or time shall be allotted in the same issue or presentation to similar matter concerning each such other political party.
Страница ii - This pamphlet, according to its own foreword, was "an outline of principles to govern the use of ideas so that they may become more effective weapons in the war.
Страница 2 - Peace Aims.— The force of the arms of the United States is being directed toward putting an end to the rule of gangsterism in international affairs, and equally toward the reestablishing of order in the world society and the restoration of law as the rule of action in the intercourse of nations. We fight to preserve for our own people and for people throughout the world the chance to learn or to continue learning how to govern themselves and how to live with one another.
Страница 3 - Were they to become its masters, democracy would perish. In time, the majority will be returned to civil life and will have the same privileges and duties as other citizens. They will exert political force according to the validity and vigor of their political ideas. They should not expect to do more than that. Hence irresponsible talk about the political implications of the growing strength of the Armed Forces, epitomized in such phrases as "this Army will return some day and run the country," is...
Страница 13 - ... or past military mistakes. Our need is not whitewash but understanding. Truth will serve the purpose if we make the effort to see them as they are— heroic peoples who have carried on against great odds, whose military purblindness in the past has never been worse than our own, whose share of this war's burdens has thus far been vastly greater than our own and whose military cause is so inseparably linked with ours that any hurt to their position must react violently upon us. Talebearing, such...
Страница 10 - ... editorial treatment as to obscure all other forces in the combination militating against us. To instruct that Hitler wrought this evil on the world single-handedly or with the aid only of his party henchmen is to exculpate the German Army, and ignore the history of prewar Germany. Here is a question which requires answer: If Hitler were to die tomorrow, would the forces which have put Germany at war with the greater part of humanity die with him? We know that they would not do so, because they...
Страница 13 - United Nations.— The aim of all information treating of the United Nations should be to convince the Armed Forces of the United States that only military, mental, and moral unity with our Allies will bring victory. Our enemy is not one country. It is a highly integrated military mechanism made up of the total might of Germany, Japan, and Italy, with their satellites and their temporary slaves in the occupied countries. We can prevail over these forces only if we train and work and discipline ourselves...
Страница 10 - ... must continue to seek those same ends until they are confronted by unmistakably superior military power. Yet, in that hour, the concentrating upon Hitler as the foe we fight in Europe would become a bankrupt policy. Hence the need to continue looking beyond the symbol to the thing itself, to the nature of the forces which compose it and to the historical roots of the matter.
