    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That's kind of a slow scanner you've got there, Michael....but the book looks Interesting!

    On a lighter note, it looks like there are now several copies of it available online at "BookFinder.com" starting at about 50 bucks. They also list a horrendous number of his other books as well!
