I write this book for the young men who come after us. They will be the judges of our actions. I dedicate this book to my dead comrades. They accomplished the greatest deeds of us all. And if I wish to assign a particular purpose to the book, it is this: I wish to show that our fates rested in our own hands whether we would be merchants or soldiers, whether we would enjoy life or consider our good fortune nothing more than an idea whereby the tiny boat of our existence flows in the eternal stream of history.
