He who loves the bristle of bayonets only sees in the glitter what beforehand he feels in his heart.

Here are a couple from Patton:

It is the cold glitter of the attacker's eye not the point of the questing bayonet that breaks the line.

Few men are killed by bayonets, but may are scared by them. Having the bayonet fixed makes our men want to close. Only the threat to close will defeat a determined enemy.

Marines know how to use their bayonets, Army bayonets may as well be paperweights.

that was actually a quote but i forgot who said it.


No disrespect meant to the army, it was just a quote/joke, it was said by some general after returning from Nam i think, i will check on it later.

Interesting that it should've been made by a Marine general in Vietnam which saw no bayonet charges by anyone. The last bayonet charge by any branch of the US military was in Korea and it was an Army unit that did it.
