Military and Warfare Tropes
"It is well that war is so terrible — lest we should grow too fond of it."
Robert E. Lee

“War is the father of us all, King of all. Some it makes gods, some it makes men, some it makes slaves, some free.”
Heraclitus

Contrast Peace Tropes. See also the often related Spy Fiction.
