William T. Sherman Quotes

"There is many a boy here today who looks on war as all glory,
but boys, it is all hell."
"Some of you young men think that war is all glamour and glory,
but let me tell you, boys, it is all hell!"

-General William T. Sherman,
speech 1880 from which we derive the phrase "War is hell"

I've also found this version

"I am sick and tired of war. Its glory is all moonshine.
It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard
the shrieks and groans of the wounded
who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.
War is hell."
From "On Killing" by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman


"An Army is a collection of armed men obliged to obey one man.
Every change in the rules which impairs the principle weakens the army"
-William Tecumseh Sherman

"War is cruelty. There's no use trying to reform it, the crueler it is the
sooner it will be over."
-William Tecumseh Sherman

"War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them
all they want."
- General William T. Sherman

"A battery of field artillery is worth a thousand muskets."
- General William Tecumseh Sherman

"I will accept no commission that would tend to create a rivalry with Grant.
I want him to hold what he has earned and got.
I have all the rank I want"
- General of the Army William Tecumseh Sherman
in a letter to his brother in 1865
