War and Peace in this Generation

warThere are points in time when the history of the world seemed to revolve around giants who have forced their personality on to the global stage. These have included such world leaders as Winston Churchill, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, and Adolf Hitler. However the tides of war was filled with warriors like Gen. Eisenhower, Gen. Patton, Gen. Rommel, Gen. MacArthur, Gen. Yamashita, Adm. Yamamoto, Lord Mountbatten, and Gen. Montgomery, Adm. Nimitz, Adm. Halsey, and Adm. Spruance, among others, who were brought front and center under the scrutiny of their opponents, their men and their own national leaders.

Looking at the lens of history, we see that these men steeled themselves and looked at war in the eye and gave a good account of themselves. What made these men great (or terrible) was that they fought as if they were the underdogs (which they most probably were at some point). For the most part they fought knowing what the risks were involved. In some cases, they knew that a few years down the road they would be seen as fighting on the wrong side of history.

There is a personal side to all of these men. They were private individuals who were introspective and pensive, and studied their opponents as much as they studied maps and their own logistics. They became successful because they were able to predict who would be opposing their forces, and what would the opposing side do.

In their own free time, they were seen as a lot smaller men and not the giants history has painted them. These men cared a lot about their personnel, soldiers and sailors they are going to war with. In their own free time, they took off their impassive masks and took care of their dogs, tickling or rubbing their pet’s belly. It seems that if a general had a pet, it would be a dog. Of course not all of them had dogs, but those that did, were not bashful of posing for a picture with their pet.

The human side of these titans showed at odd times, but always they were human when it was with their pets, holding their leash as if it was their only anchor to their own humanity. Speaking of leashes, how well do you take care of your dogs? It is important to know that you’re giving your loyal pets the best care they could possibly deserve.
