Цитаты Фердинанд Фош

„Everything in war is linked together, is mutually interdependent, mutually interpenetrating.“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: The military art is not an accomplishment, an art for dilettante, a sport. You do not make war without reason, without an object, as you would give yourself up to music, painting, hunting, lawn tennis, where there is no great harm done whether you stop altogether or go on, whether you do little or much. Everything in war is linked together, is mutually interdependent, mutually interpenetrating. When you are at war you have no power to act at random. Each operation has a raison d'etre, that is an object; that object, once determined, fixes the nature and the value of the means to be resorted to as well as the use which ought to be made of the forces. p. 214

„An army is to a chief what a sword is to a soldier. It is only worth anything in so far as it receives from him a certain impulsion“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: An army is to a chief what a sword is to a soldier. It is only worth anything in so far as it receives from him a certain impulsion (direction and vigour). p. 138

„A war not only arises, but derives its nature, from the political ideas, the moral sentiments, and the international relations obtaining at the moment when it breaks out.“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: A war not only arises, but derives its nature, from the political ideas, the moral sentiments, and the international relations obtaining at the moment when it breaks out. This amounts to saying : try and know why and with the help of what you are going to act; then you will find out how to act. p. 211

„The laurels of victory are at the point of the enemy bayonets.“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: The laurels of victory are at the point of the enemy bayonets. They must be plucked there; they must be carried by a hand-to-hand fight if one really means to conquer. p. 105

„To be disciplined does not mean being silent, abstaining, or doing only what one thinks one may undertake without risk“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: To be disciplined does not mean being silent, abstaining, or doing only what one thinks one may undertake without risk; it is not the art of eluding responsibility; it means acting in compliance with orders received, and therefore finding in one's own mind, by effort and reflection, the possibility to carry out such orders. It also means finding in one's own will the energy to face the risks involved in execution. p.

„The first obstacle is the enemy gun. It will be the first objective assigned to artillery masses.“

—  Ferdinand Foch
Context: Against what should fire be opened? Against the obstacles which may delay the march of infantry. The first obstacle is the enemy gun. It will be the first objective assigned to artillery masses. p. 108
