      • Martin Luther cause of the reformation
        Frederick the great (made prussia one of the five great powers in europe)
        Bismarck for creating the German nation state.
        Konrad Adenauer for creating the European economic community and bringing west Germany back in the game after WW2 (rearming, getting nukes etc.)

        My personal favourites though Germans wouldn't consider them heroes today would be Carl von Clausewitz (Army reformer and military theorist during the napoleonic wars known for his book "on war")
        and August Neidhardt von Gneisenau who was a leading army reformer after Prussias defeat and Blücher's chief of staff planning both Prussia's and Russian strategies during the campagnes that lead to Napoleon's defeat.

          Why is it called a tourist season if we're not supposed to hunt them?

Its part of the Canadian psyche I suppose...
            Talking of Canadian hockey heroes. The grandson of Phil Esposito was on the same school in Krefeld as me^^

                              • Lee Kuan Yew.
