The Man of the Twentieth Century:
Remembering Ernst Jünger,
March 29, 1895-February 17, 1998

3,519 words

If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. His incredible lifespan alone (he died a month shy of his 103rd birthday) spanned the Kaiserreich, the German Revolution, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Federal Republic of Germany, and finally, reunited Germany in his final decade – Read more …

Hitler & Clausewitz:
The Philosopher as War Cry, Part Four

An East German soldier guards Clausewitz’s grave in the 1980s.

1,982 words

Part 4 of 4 (Part One here; Part Two here; Part Three here)

Conclusion: Freedom or Death

After his death, Clausewitz had a public destiny rare for generals, let alone theorists. He was not only enthusiastically celebrated in the Third Reich, a regime firmly dedicated to many of the Prussian virtues, but, for better and for worse, his words proved to be of foundational importance for Hitler and his own life’s work.

Hitler & the Bekenntnis: A Mantra of Resistance & Renewal

Clausewitz in the Third Reich I: A National Hero

Clausewitz’s presence in this period of German history cannot be reduced to Hitler. As a Prussian patriot and the preeminent theorist of modern war, Clausewitz was unsurprisingly enthusiastically celebrated in the Third Reich. Read more …

Hitler & Clausewitz:
The Philosopher as War Cry, Part One

Young Clausewitz.

4,080 words

Part 1 of 4

All intellectuals dream that their ideas will not be confined to the dead letters of books accumulating dust on library shelves, but should possess the world. An underexplored but highly fertile field in this respect is the influence of the great Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz upon the German dictator and warlord Adolf Hitler. This is an extremely controversial issue. Clausewitz is the preeminent military theorist, rivaled in fame only by the ancient Chinese sage Sun Tzu. Read more …

German Cinema Classics 
Heimat (1938)

Heimat poster9,830 words

Heimat is one of the finest productions of Third Reich cinema, and by any standard it is an excellent film. The title means “homeland,” and in the minds of many the word Heimat is closely associated with National Socialist ideology. Indeed, a close study of this film can give us priceless insights into the true nature of that ideology. But the results may surprise you.

Pensées sur le 4 Juillet

4th-of-July-NYC-Fireworks-20123,077 words

Il y a deux semaines, nous avons célébré le 4 juillet, le plus important jour patriotique de l’Amérique. C’est un jour où nous célébrons notre force, où nous nous vantons de nos réussites, où nous nous souvenons de nos victoires, etc. Cela m’a amené à penser à la Seconde Guerre mondiale, et je vais partager quelques-unes de mes réflexions avec vous.  Read more …
