About this Quote

This quote by Wilhelm Keitel, a German Field Marshal during World War II, is a suggestion of the Nazi regime's severe militarism and neglect for human life. It implies that any sort of consideration or mercy towards the enemy is a criminal offense versus the German individuals and the soldiers at the front. This quote shows the Nazi ideology of overall war, where the opponent should be completely destroyed and no grace ought to be shown. It also shows the Nazi's neglect for human life, as they believed that the German individuals and soldiers at the front were more important than the lives of their enemies. This quote acts as a suggestion of the brutality of the Nazi routine and the lengths they were willing to go to in order to accomplish their objectives.
