I've gone with the 'farewell speech', just because I find words in general so meaningful, and those words in particular. The discussion around whether he wrote it is not so significant to me as the sentiments it carried, and I doubt they were anyone's but Forrest's. It was a magnanimous speech and the promise it held I believe was sincere at the time.

I totally agree, although I finally decided to go with Brice's Crossroads. A classic textbook example of the double-envelopment. Still studied and taught by the military even today.
That was one of the babies, for sure! There are great reasons to choose any of them...but that relevance to current study is a biggie.
