FRIEDRICH VON BERNHARDI
German soldier and writer on militarism
(1849 - 1930)

The inevitableness, the idealism, and the blessing of war, as an indispensable and stimulating law of development, must be repeatedly emphasized.
      - Germany and the next War (ch. I) [War]

War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with. . . . But it is not only a biological law but a moral obligation, and, as such, an dispensable factor in civilization.
      - Germany and the next War (ch. I) [War]

Our next war will be fought for the highest interests of our country and of mankind. This will invest it with importance in the world's history. "World power or downfall" will be our rallying cry.
      - Germany and the next War (ch. VII) [War]

We Germans have a far greater and more urgent duty towards civilization to perform than the Great Asiatic Power. We, like the Japanese, can only fulfil it by the sword.
      - Germany and the next War (ch. XIII) [War]
