Dear Conrad, war is your specialty. Historians love you for it. I love you for it. After all, not only is it fun, it’s creative! Your best scienti.c discoveries are made in wartime: the atom bomb, radar, luncheon meat. And think of all that travel! Getting away from home, making new acquaintances, indulging in amatory dalliance with strangers. So broadening. And then: the delirium of battle, the rush of adrenalin to the head as the trumpets sound attack! Conrad, war is the principal art form of your race. - Gore Vidal, Visit to a Small Planet, revised (play, 1957)
