    Haha! Very funny!

    But don’t you worry, this war was already fought, from 1914 to 1918.

    And we Germans even didn’t start it!

    But I have to admit, that Kaiser Wilhelm II and his chancellor von Bethmann Hollweg came in an absolutly irresponsible way to the assistance of their Austrian-Hungary buddies. Afterwards everyone happily joined the war.

    Finally even the USA.

    Unlike most Americans (I think), I agree with your interpretation of History. Germany got a bad rap on that one. Every country in Europe was smacking its lips for a chance to have a real war to end all wars, and the assassination in Serbia finally gave them all that chance. The only thing I can see that Germany really did wrong was lose. The real tragedy of it all was the Versailles Treaty and the horrible war that that so-called treaty led to.

    From what I know about the time period, Europe was ripe for war. It wouldn’t surprise me that every country at that time had a pro-war members acting under cover without the knowledge of the leaders of their countries. The European military leaders had a mind set of the 19th century, based on napoleonic tactics and weapons.
    It did not matter that the United States had shown the horrible slaughter that was possible because of modern weapons combined with the rigid line formation used in earlier wars. They considered us as unskilled at “civilized” warfare and dismissed the lessons we learned at such a high, bloody cost.

    Depends whether or not, Broadsword is calling Danny Boy.

    Thank you very much!

    I agree with everything you wrote.

    The only point I am not sure about is Germany’s failure of not winning the war. I wonder what would have happened … Even as a German I get a queasy feeling in my stomach when I think about it. This goes for WWI as well as for WWII. Germany is to big. There would always be the danger that it would try to form some kind of German Europe.

    They accuse us even now to use the Euro to dominate Europe. To my opinion the Euro was created by the French as an instrument to destroy the Deutschmark, the German economical power. They were not able to rise their economy to our level, so they tried to pull us down on their level. What is the result? All Euro-Europe is tottering on the brink of desaster, while Germany will certainly survive the crisis. Maybe with a few scratches, but this time Germany will win.

    But still I can’t help it – I like the frogs.

    Well said. I’ve long thought that McClellan simply didn’t fight the Napoleonic Wars quite as well as Lee did, and Grant beat Lee by fighting World War I instead.

    Dear Madam or Sir,

    I thank you for offering your opinion and I agree with you as well as I did with Davidf42.

    No one in Europe learned anything of the terrible outcome of the American civil war. Maybe it was 1914 already forgotten. 49 years later and another continent …

    The European military leaders claimed all that they had read their Clausewitz. I wonder if they really did. If they did, they didn’t understand him at all. They all spoiled for a good old war, as they had fought before, as you described it.

    Modern weapons? Machine guns? Steam powered giant war ships? Aeroplanes with machine guns? Tanks? Their brains were to small to grab the outcome of a war with all these facilities at their hands. Military types were never known for high mental capbilities.

    Anyway, Bismarck was a good man. But I wonder what had happened if the Kaiser did not send him packing. Certainly more people would have died.
