Stephen E. Ambrose, (1936 – 2002)

As of 1945 -- the year in which more people were killed violently, more buildings destroyed, more homes burned than any other year in history -- World Wars 1 and 2 had made a mockery of the nineteenth-century idea of progress, the notion that things were getting better and would continue to do so.-- Stephen E. Ambrose, (January 10, 1936 – October 13, 2002) American historian,"Citizen Soldiers"
