“The essence of war is violence. Moderation in war is imbecility.”
John A. Fisher

A search of the Internet (which I should have done in the first place) led
me to a quote page that told me the author of the above quote. However, a
further search of the Internet failed to find any info on Mr. John A.
(Jacky) Fisher.

Okay, I give up… who was he?
