Quote of the Day

I am almost frightened by the vitality these Germans show after what they've undergone. I believe, once they've been given the word GO, they'll have a bridge over the Rhine in three months, and that in a short time their output of steel will be huge. 

- British colonel, the Ruhr, May 2, 1945
