Pāgina 13 - I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German Government to be in fact nothing less than war against the government and people of the United States; that it formally accept the status of belligerent which has thus been thrust upon it; and that it take immediate steps not only to put the country in a more thorough state of defense but also to exert all its power and employ all its resources to bring the Government of the German Empire to terms and end the war.
Pāgina 13 - With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of the grave responsibilities which it involves but in unhesitating obedience to what I deem my constitutional duty I advise that the Congress declare the recent course of the Imperial German Government to be in fact nothing less than war against the Government and people of the United States...
Pāgina 64 - The National Convention declares, in the name of the French nation, that it will grant fraternity and assistance to all people who wish to recover their liberty ; and it charges the executive power to send the necessary orders to the generals, to give succours to such people, and to defend those citizens who have suffered, or may suffer, in the cause of liberty.

Pāgina 47 - ... riders. There was no means of escaping; the entire column was one huge projectile. The force acquired to crush the English, crushed the French, and the inexorable ravine would not yield till it was filled up. Men and horses rolled into it pell-mell, crushing each other, and making one large charnel-house of the gulf, and when this grave was full of living men the rest passed over them. Nearly one-third of Dubois' brigade rolled into this abyss.
Pāgina 47 - It was a frightful moment — the ravine was there, unexpected, yawning, almost precipitous, beneath the horses' feet, and with a depth of twelve feet between its two sides. The second rank thrust the first into the abyss ; the horses reared, fell back, slipped with all four feet in the air, crushing and throwing their riders. There was no means of escaping ; the entire column was one huge projectile. The force acquired to crush the English crushed the French, and the inexorable ravine would not...
Pāgina 45 - Make them your models. This is the only way to become a great general and to master the secrets of the art of war.
Pāgina 48 - Was it possible for Napoleon to win the battle? We answer in the negative. Why? On account of Wellington, on account of Blucher?
