„As comics writers we had to have villains in our stories. And once World War II started, the Nazis gave us the greatest villains in the world to fight against. It was a slam dunk.“

„World War II was an era in which America came of age as a world power. We had and we still have many lessons to learn.“

—  Mark W. Clark American general 1896 - 1984

Zdroj: From the Danube to the Yalu (1954), p. 493
Kontext: World War II was an era in which America came of age as a world power. We had and we still have many lessons to learn. It was not surprising, perhaps, that we celebrated a victory when in reality we had not won the war. We had stopped too soon. We had been too eager to go home. We welcomed the peace, but after more years of effort and expenditure we found that we had won no peace.
