Secrets of Ordensburg Vogelsang
Ok. I know a little about this, but not a lot. Might be a good one to learn from. I'll start it off
"Der neue Staat wird dann ein Phantasieprodukt sein, wenn er nicht einen neuen Menschen schafft." Adolf Hitler
"The new state will then be a fantasy product, if it does not create a new human being."
Ordensburg Vogelsang was to educate the Junker in the political and spiritual principles of the Third Reich,
Ordensburg Krössinsee was to provide the physical and military training of the future leaders, while Ordensburg Sonthofen was to provide the professional training that would channel each future leader into a career that would place the reins of government into their hands
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
