“War is cruelty. There’s no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”

Richard Anderson-Ghost battlefield

“If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking”

-William Tecumseh Sherman, aka General Sherman
