Don't wait till you see the whites of their eyes...
Don't kid yourself it will be over by Christmas...
Don't try to shut out the screams...
And don't forget to wash your hands afterwards...

From a queue of some 360 "eager" conscripts waiting to go to war, a team of up to six will "volunteer" for each new mission. Encourage your soldiers to shoot anything that moves, throw grenades, fire bazookas, drive tanks, fly choppers, split up and do their own thing... and die... Guide your no-hoper's troop straight trough deadly missions. And if you lose some of them? There's more where that came from...

An excerpt from Wikipedia (pacifism versus warmongering):

Wikipedian wrote: The game was also criticised by the media for what was, at the time, considered excessive violence and glorification of war. In Germany the game was banned for sale to minors. Ironically, given its detractors, the game itself is a satire on war and those who revel in it, and makes numerous statements to this effect.

These include the title of the game, the title song (which includes the lyrics "go up to your brother / kill him with your gun / leave him lying in his uniform / dying in the sun"), and the enlisting recruits queuing next to a hill covered with soldiers' graves. Each soldier has a name, and the player is reminded of the casualties by name at the end of the level.

The game manual ended with "And on a more serious note: don't try playing this at home, kids, because war is not a game - war, as Cannon Fodder demonstrates in its own quirky little way, is a senseless waste of human resources and lives. We hope that you never have to find out the hard way"
