Mad Old Friedrich

  • Mad Old Friedrich is a German leader.
  • He is met in chapter 13.
  • He thinks that war is mad. Quote from page 108: 'I tell you my friends. I tell you that I am the only sane man in the regiment. It's the others who are mad, but they don't know it. They fight a war and they don't know what for. Isn't it crazy? How can one man kill another man and not really know the reason why he does it, except that the other man wears a defferent colour uniform and speaks a different language?'
  • The horses know that he is not mad at all but the other soldiers think that he is mad because of his opinion on the war.
