Ben Macintyre Quotes: War Is Too Messy To Produce Easy Heroes

War Is Too Messy To Produce Easy Heroes And Villains; There Are Always Brave People On The Wrong Side, And Evil Men Among The Victors, And A Mass Of Perfectly Ordinary People Struggling To Survive And Understand In Between. Away From The Battlefields, War Forces Individuals To Make Impossible Choices In Circumstances They Did Not Create, And Could Never Have Expected. Most Accommodate, Some Collaborate, And A Very Few Find An Internal Compass They Never Knew They Had, Pointing To The Right Path.
