Alexander Suvorov (1729 – 1800)


Russian Generalissimo.
Alexander Suvorov
A strong pursuit, give no time for the enemy to think, take advantage of victory, uproot him, cut off his escape route.
Suvorov quotes
Drill your soldiers well, and give them a pattern yourself.
Suvorov
It is very difficult to do one's duty. I was considered a barbarian because at the storming of the Praga 7,000 people were killed. Europe says that I am a monster. I myself have read this in the papers, but I would have liked to talk to people about this and ask them: is it not better to finish a war with the death of 7,000 people rather than to drag it on and kill 100,000.




Suvorov Alexander quotes
As long as the enemy fights he must be beaten relentlessly, but a defeated enemy and especially the civilian population must be treated generously.

The bullet is a mad thing; only the bayonet knows what it is about.

Fight the enemy with the weapons he lacks.

Die for the Virgin, for your mother the Empress, for the royal family. The Church will pray to God for the dead. The survivor has honor and glory.

Exercises cultivated self-reliance - the foundation of courage.

The more comfort the less courage there is.

When the enemy is driven back, we have failed, and when he is cut off, encircled and dispersed, we have succeeded.
Alexander Suvorov
If we had not driven them into hell... hell would have swallowed us.
Alexander Suvorov quotes
The officers know that I myself am not ashamed to work at this. ...Suvorov was Major, and Adjutant, and everything down to Corporal; I myself looked into everything and could teach everybody.

Judgment of eye, speed and attack are the basis of victory.

Money is expensive during the war. Human life is more expensive. And time is the most expensive.
