Birkenhead Drill Quotes

To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when youre all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary.
