From Breaker Morant
[after Handcock has admitted to murdering the missionary
] Major Thomas has been pleading justifying circumstances and now we're just lying.
We're lying? What about THEM? It's no bloody secret. Our graves were dug the day they arrested us at Fort Edwards.
Yeah, but killing a missionary, Peter?
It's a new kind of war, George. A new war for a new century. I suppose this is the first time the enemy hasn't been in uniform. They're farmers. They come from small villages, and they shoot at from behind walls and from farmhouses. Some of them are women, some of them are children, and some of them... are missionaries, George.
