"Tanya, how many people do I kill, how many people do I ask to die fighting, in the name of avenging a crime committed a hundred years ago? I'm not perfect. If I could somehow get my hands on the Syndic bastards who started this war, I'd make them suffer. But they're all dead. Now I'm damned if I can figure out what this war is still about aside from avenging the latest defeat or atrocity. it's turned into a self-sustaining cyclic reation, and you and I both know the Alliance as well as the Syndicate Worlds are starting to crack from the pressure of a war without end.

Situation: recounting historical battles, and the destruction of a planet.

Geary shook his head, feeling sick inside. "How could anyone give such orders?"
"Oh, it's easy enough, Captain Geary. you justy have to form your palns somewhere far from the enemy while looking at a large star display with lots of little planets on it. Just dots with strange names. Targets. Not the homes of people like you, but targets that must be wiped out in the name of protecting people llike you. It's very easy," she repeated, "to rationalize the murders of millions or billions."

Continues to be a good series, which, by this time, some don't! So, thought to mention this. Space battles still fascinating, as is the "relationship" development between Fleet Comander and the other Captains. A little more human development on this one.
