Henry V in Shakespeare's The Life of King Henry the Fifth rallies his troops to battle with “…when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger”

Michael Williams answers Henry V's speech evoking the dead and dismembered to warn of the consequences of war: “But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make..”

Henry VI in The Third part of King Henry the Sixth ruminates on the shifting of power balance in battle until “To whom God will, there be the victory. “...Both tugging to be victors, breast to breast, Yet neither conqueror nor conquered…”

The final speech in War comes from Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address he reflects on role of God in man's quest for victory “… pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other.”
