Do you smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time, we had a hill bombed for twelve hours. When it was all clear, I walked up. We didn't find one of them, not one stinking dink body. But the smell, you know, that gasoline smell. The whole hill... it smelled like... victory. Someday this war's going to end.
~ Bill Kilgore's most famous quote.
Lieutenant Colonel William "Bill" Kilgore is the secondary antagonist of the 1979 film Apocalypse Now. He is an amoral warmonger who actually enjoys the war and calls it home.
He is introduced in the movie when Willard and his allies ask him for help in getting up to the Nùng. Kilgore scoffs but befriends Lance after discovering his surfing experience and agrees to escort them through the Nùng's Viet Cong–held coastal mouth. They successfully raid at dawn, with Kilgore ordering a napalm sortie on the local cadres. He and his men then proceed to mercilessly kill, shoot and blow up numerous innocent civilians, showing a complete and utter disregard for civilian and human life, and showing Kilgore as what he is, a bloodthirsty, sadistic and amoral warmonger. This arguably makes him eviler than the film's main antagonist, Colonel Walter E. Kurtz, as he is willing to involve innocent civilians in his reign of mass murder and destruction, and shows no guilt for his deeds.
