Theodor Rocholl Erster Weltkrieg.jpg   Croce e serpente.svg

Oh, Death was never enemy of ours!
We laughed at him, we leagued with him, old chum.
No soldier's paid to kick against His powers.
We laughed, — knowing that better men would come,
And greater wars: when each proud fighter brags
He wars on Death, for lives; not men, for flags.

~ Wilfred Owen ~
