I don't know who said it originally; but a faithfull footsoldier is often a more committed ally than a hired mercinary. In the heat of battle it can be the sense of dedication and cameraderie that makes the difference... not the size of the paycheck... just ask Ducati/Yamaha, Ferrari/Sauber Mercedes etc.
