One of the Super Bowl commercials, the one for Jeep about troops returning
home, had the following line:

"Half the battle is knowing that this is half the battle."


My brain promptly exploded, but when I had put it back together again, I
wondered whether we know the origin of "half the battle" as a phrase.
