Warfare Quotes in War Horse
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)
When the end of the war did come, it came swiftly. [...] There was little joy, little celebration of victory, only a sense of profound relief. (19.6)
The only reward for these men is that they don't have to fight anymore. They gain nothing from being at war, except for life-long injuries and trauma. There is no cause to celebrate.
