General Wisdom

“I divide my officers into four classes;
the clever,
the lazy,
the industrious,
and the stupid.
Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities.”

- General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
"a German general who served for a period as Commander-in-Chief of the Reichswehr. He is famous for being an ardent opponent of Hitler and the Nazi regime"
from Wikipedia "

Hmmm...which are your traits?

  1. The clever and lazy do nothing.

    The stupid and lazy, again, nothing.

    The clever and industrious, may work miracles.

    But it is the stupid and industrious officer for which one must always be on the lookout. It is this officer which will destroy your own army.
