Origins of expression

Okay, I have been poking around the web all afternoon trying to find an answer to this question, and I am at my wit's end.

There is an oft-repeated adage to the effect that generals are always prepared to fight the last [previous] war. My question is where this expression comes from, and, if it's a quotation, who said it and what the exact quotation was.

Any ideas?
