If you haven't read The Rage and the Pride, you should. It's a glorious read, with some really splendid passages.
You can find it in several places on the internet. It's not too long to read by computer. Here, for instance:
"Well never know the number of dead. (Forty thousand, fifty thousand?) The Americans will never tell, so as not to underline the intensity of this apocalypse."
Anybody have any thoughts on that?
