Murphyish Military Laws
- Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.
No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.
-- Field Marshall Helmuth Carl Bernard von Moltke
- Friendly fire ain’t.
- The most dangerous thing in the combat zone is an officer with a map.
- The problem with taking the easy way out is that the enemy has already mined it.
- The buddy system is essential to your survival; it gives the enemy somebody else to shoot at.
- The further you are in advance of your own positions, the more likely your artillery will shoot short.
- Incoming fire has the right of way.
- If your advance is going well, you are walking into an ambush.
- The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small. 
- If you really need an officer in a hurry, take a nap.
- The only time suppressive fire works is when it is used on abandoned positions.
- The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
- There is nothing more satisfying than having someone take a shot at you, and miss.
- Don’t be conspicuous. In the combat zone, it draws fire. Out of the combat zone, it draws sergeants.
- If your sergeant can see you, so can the enemy.
- Never worry about the bullet with your name on it. Instead, worry about shrapnel addressed to ‘occupant’.
- All battles are fought at the junction of two or more map sheets. …printed at different scales; …uphill; …and in the rain.
Logistics is the ball and chain of armoured warfare.
-- Heinz Guderian

A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.
-- George Patton

- If the enemy is in range, so are you.
War is like love. To triumph, you must make contact.
-- Attributed to Napoleon
Boldness becomes rarer, the higher the rank.
-- Karl von Clausewitz
- Never reinforce failure. Failure reinforces itself.
Only 5% of an intelligence report is accurate. The trick of
a good commander is to isolate the 5%. -- Douglas MacArthur
- Tactics is for amateurs; professionals study logistics.
- When a front line soldier overhears two General Staff officers conferring, he’s fallen back too far.
- It isn’t necessary to be an idiot to be a senior officer, but it sure helps.
No captain can do very wrong who places his ship alongside
that of the enemy. -- Vice Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson
Only numbers can annihilate.
-- Vice Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson
- Always know when it’s time to get out of Dodge.
- Always know how to get out of Dodge.

Snow is not neutral.
