Anyone who's wondering how a human can be anti-war during the Kilrathi War might want to read some of the inner-world viewpoints in Fleet Action (especially the bar scene in the beginning).
Napoleon said:Well we know it didnt work for the TC, thus the TC situation is not like comparable to the modern day world, but rather to WW2 (well it was ww2 in space) and id say like the false peace, had the allies been dumber could have worked in ww2 as well, had like Rommel and his buddies succeeded in killing hitler in 44, giving the nazis time to get alot of jets and rockets and nukes.

Put down the crack pipe and walk away.BlackJack2063 said:The Nazis made plenty of mistakes when they were around, but when you have a meglomaniac running the show you can't expect otherwise. Why are great leaders madmen lol. Napoleon, Alexander, Patton, Hitler and several others, enlightened madness I guess.
Sylvester said:Patton was eccentric, and a prima donna. He wrote poetry and believed in reincarnation. Whether these particular attributes helped him be a brilliant strategist, I don't know. But I do know that by some special insight, by working in an area of the mind, diffrent from most, he became arguably the best Allied commander of the war. Ironically, the abscense of war is what ultimately killed him. Their are charachters like this in the Wing Commander universe as well.
Sylvester said:Patton was paralyzed and later died when his jeep was hit by a truck.
