Paul Fussell in Paris, 1945 ‘The Farther from the Scene of Horror, the Easier the Talk’
R. J. Stove

Robert Stove provides an obituary appropriate for Memorial Day.

The survival of any culture, or of the material fabric of civilization, requires vigorous imagination and readiness to sacrifice. By dullness and complacency are intellectual and social orders undone.
