Sergeant Katczinsky
Whenever there's a big war coming on, you should rope-off a big field.
Infantry Soldier
And sell tickets.
Sergeant Katczinsky
Yeah. And on the big day, you take all the Kings, and their Cabinets, and their Generals, put them in the center dressed in their underpants and let them fight it out with clubs. The best country wins.
From the 1930 screenplay of Erich Maria Remarque's [1898-1970] 1928 novel All Quiet on the Western Front.
