"The conqueror is always a lover of peace; he would prefer to take over our country unopposed."
In this issue, Meinen Damen und Herren, you will gain greater understanding of certain aspects of Prussia's contribution to the Napoleonic Wars: The intellectual giant of war theory, Carl Philipp Gottlieb von Clausewitz, is celebrated in an illuminating essay by Peter Robinson, and also in Meet the Leaders. The spiritual/musical side of the Prussian military is evoked by two of the favorite Lutheran hymns of the Landser, presented in The NWC Songbook. Do you think Church music is unmilitary? After absorbing the lyrics of Ein' Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott, you'll be inspired to tackle your weight in wildcats, or "hordes of devils"! And, natürlich, the Bekanntmachung den Königliche Preussiche Armee occupies its usual place of honor. Ach, so!
