The mere opening of negotiations, suggesting as it does a prospect of peace, automatically reduces the will of the defence to continue fighting. To a certain extent the guerilla’s morale is affected too, but his leaders are in a position to exhort him to continue fighting ‘unremittingly’ in a ‘heightened struggle,’ whereas the opposing leaders cannot issue such an appeal without being accused of prejudicing the negotiations.

--Sir Robert Thompson
