Famous quotes containing the words forces and/or allied:

    All that I have to say touching this, is that I observe a great part of those his forces do look and march another way, and some of them fight amongst themselves.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    A shadow has fallen upon the scenes so lately lighted by the Allied victory.... From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent.
    Winston Churchill (1874–1965)
