* ''Literature/WithoutRemorse'': At the briefing for [[OperationBlank Operation Boxwood Green]], the Marines are informed that they won't learn the details of the mission until after they volunteer. Most of the older Marines, who've already served multiple tours in Vietnam and now have families of their own, decide not to go because of this. It's noted that if they had known that it was a rescue mission for American prisoners of war left behind in Vietnam, every single Marine would've volunteered.

* Discussed in a deleted scene from ''[[Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982 Conan the Barbarian]]'', just before the final battle:
-->'''Conan:''' "Almost 20 years of pitiless cumber! No rest, no sleep like other men. And yet the spring wind blows, Subotai. Have you ever felt such a wind?"\\
'''Subotai:''' "They blow where I live, too. In the north of every man's heart."\\
'''Conan:''' "It's never too late, Subotai."\\
'''Subotai:''' "No. [[YouCantFightFate It would only lead me back here another day]]. [[VitriolicBestBuds In even worse company]]."\\
'''Conan:''' "For us, there is no spring. [[AStormIsComing Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm]]."

** Well that first time may have been justified, she wanted to be sure the deserters weren't going to betray them to the enemy, and when those sent to kill the deserters caught up to them, they were making straight for the enemy camp. Very convenient for her, given that she made this decision based on ''no'' evidence beyond them not wanting to be commanded by a strange woman who just showed up a few hours ago. To be fair to her, she's the leader of all the Midlands, it's reasonable to expect total compliance. Besides, if she was wrong, she killed fifty-some people who essentially deserted their service. If she was right and didn't act on it, she doomed the army and all the nearby cities. It's a pretty crappy choice, but that's the reality of it.
