A Great Quote

* from DREADNOUGHT – Britain, Germany and the Coming of the Great War

by Robert K. Massie

 

* Bismark felt that war offered more risks than opportunities; what had been won so brilliantly and swiftly might be lost with equal suddenness… This opposition to war was not based on a concern for human suffering. Rather, he considered war a clumsy way to settle international disputes.
