about

Battle being once seen to be inevitable, it was Friedrich's plan not to wait for it, but to give it. Thanks to Friedrich Wilhelm and himself, there is no Army, nor ever was any, in such continual preparation. Military people say, “Some Countries take six months, some twelve, to get in motion for war: but in three weeks Prussia can be across the marches, and upon the throat of its enemy. ” Which is an immense advantage to little Prussia among its big neighbors. “Some Countries have a longer sword than Prussia; but none can unsheathe it so soon:”— we hope, too, it is moderately sharp, when wielded by a deft hand.
