"They say that in war the truth be the first casualty". - One day as a lion

These are some similar quote to where Zack possibly came up with that line:

"The first casualty when war comes is truth"
- US Senator Hiram Warren Johnson

"When war is declared, Truth is the first casualty."
[1928 A. Ponsonby Falsehood in Wartime (epigraph)]

"Among the calamities of war may be jointly numbered the diminution of the love of truth, by the falsehoods which interest dictates and credulity encourages."
- Samuel johnson

"War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to make it. •Benito Mussolini In time of war the first casualty is truth. •Boake Carter Only the defeated and deserters go to war. •Henry David Thoreau All diplomacy is a continuation of war by other means.
- Benito Mussolini

"When war is declared, truth is the first casualty."
- Arthur Ponsonby

"In war, truth is the first casualty"
- Aeschylus

Just thought it would be something interesting, cause that line is extremely powerful.
