He who picks his words well can turn the weakest argument into the strongest.
Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to 2,500 years of oration. Ingeniously weaving together fragments of seminal sermons, declarations of war, farewells, final arguments, victory speeches and eulogies from the Grand Inquisitor and Socrates to Mohammed Ali and Osama Bin Laden, BigmoutH shows that the tricks of rhetoric have hardly changed.
When clean souls boil up in the backwash, they will consolidate after the final war, into a peace that shall endure... but not till then. By examining the things cast up in the backwash, we can gauge the progress of
humanity. Ellen Newbold-La-Motte, nurse in a field
hospital, behind the front lines in 1914
A nurse maintains watchful vigil over patients as fragments of past wars lurk within the shadows. SmallWaR tells the story in the words of those who were there and led the way, and - crucially - those who followed.
