* ArtificialStupidity: A few battles were won owing to this, including many of the countersieges of Constantinople. Getting their men fried by [[KillItWithFire Greek Fire]]? Forgivable. [[IdiotBall Charging cavalry through a row of stakes]]? [[TooDumbToLive No excuse]].

--> '''Skantarios:''' I ask my interpreter with some curiosity if this is how you write "Constantinople" in Arabic. He looks at the sign for some time and shakes his head.
--> '''Skantarios:''' He says, "No... The rough translation is: 'The land where Muslims go to die.'"
--> '''Skantarios:''' I think that is as fitting an epitaph for the Jihad as any I could write.

-->The emperor strode out before them and spoke in a clear, calm voice:
-->“You have all been judged and sentenced to death.”
-->A murmur of incredulity rose up from the ranks. Numerous whispers could be heard from the ranks: “Why?!?” “For what?” Was it a joke? Had they not heard him correctly?
-->Theodoros continued, thundering now above the murmurs: “You may be asking yourself for what crime you are accused and then sentenced. Your ‘crime’ is being born a man and being conscripted into this army. Your crime is that you belong to a nation at war. There is no judge, procedure, or appeal to this sentence. This sentence is final."
-->“There is hope, however. You can gain clemency by defeating your foe. Pass your sentence onto the enemy. Buy your life by taking his…for yours is already forfeit. By crushing him and driving him back to the steppes that spawned him. For, if you fail, you are dead. If my own men don’t kill you, the enemy surely will. If you fail, you not only condemn yourself to death, but your wives, your children, and all that you hold dear. Death, enslavement, and ruin are all that await you should you falter or fail today. The enemy will have no mercy and neither will we. Better to die here than to run."
-->"Make no mistake, there are no other alternatives. Win today, or die today. It’s an easy choice. You are already dead. Today, tomorrow, ten years from now; we all wind up in the same place. Buy your life today and that of your family. "
-->"Win."

-> Efthymios: I cried many tears that day. Tears for my brother, for father, and for the thousands of valiant soldiers led astray to their deaths. Mostly, I cried for our great failure to live up to Skantarios’ dream. If Skantarios had been here, I know he would have wept with me.
