Synopsis: This unique book traces the past 200 years of German history, using an iconic German folk hero as a bellwether of changing politics and culture. In 1809, at the height of Napoleon's power in Europe, the Prussian Major Ferdinand von Schill led a revolt against the French empire. Within a month his rebellion was crushed, and Schill became a martyr for German nationalists. As the years passed, Schill's legend grew and evolved until he had become one of Germany's most famous and celebrated Napoleonic figures: the subject of hundreds of novels, poems, plays, operas, films, biographies, and monuments.

Sam A. Mustafa explores the radical changes in German society and politics in the two centuries since Schill's death. In the first English-language work on the subject, he shows how Schill remarkably endured as other heroes fell in and out of fashion. For imperial propagandists, Liberal Democrats, Nazis, and Communists alike, he was a favorite historical icon and cultural touchstone. The author traces how an obscure failed rebel became a revered national symbol of patriotism and heroism and the ways each successive German regime coopted his story for its own ideological mission. Drawing on a rich array of primary and secondary sources, Mustafa considers the nature of patriotism, the creation of heroes and heroic mythology, and the fragility of history itself in a masterful narrative that will be an invaluable reference for anyone interested in the German experience during the Napoleonic Wars.

About the Author: Sam A. Mustafa is associate professor of history at Ramapo College of New Jersey.

Book Description ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This unique book tells the remarkable story of Ferdinand von Schill, the Prussian major who led a failed revolt against Napoleon. After his death in 1809 Schill became a ubiquitous figure of German nationalism, a symbolic hero used by monarchists, Liberal Democrats, Nazis, and Communists alike, each for their own ends. Using the narrative of Schill's famous "ride," Sam A. Mustafa guides readers through the radical changes in German society and politics in the past two centuries. In the process, he considers the nature of patriotism, the creation of heroes and heroic mythology, and the fragility of history itself in a masterful narrative that will be an invaluable reference for anyone interested in the German experience during the Napoleonic Wars.
