Joel asked about these a few weeks back but I was waiting for another example.

  In front of me is a copy of Dittmar & Michaud's collection of essays on Vietnam War films, _From Hanoi to Hollywood_ (Rutgers U.P., 1990).  The editors say that American war movies generally assert that "[W]ar is hell but God is on our side" (p. 11).

  Quotable, yes?  But Google Books, which offers a "Limited Preview," does not reveal the existence of the quote, or at least would not after several tries by yours truly a few minutes ago.Shame! Shame!
