Hayek: On The Time I Came to Bayonet a Man to Death

From IHS and the Rebirth of Austrian Economics: Some Reflections 1974-1976, by John Blundell in the Quaterly Journal of Austrian Economics:
When Hayek asked Bartley to do the biography he said: “There are only three things that sell books namely sex, money and violence. As to sex, well, I left my first wife for my first girlfriend. As to money, well, I never had any. And as to violence, let me tell you how I came to bayonet a man to death in World War One!”
