* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Rudolph's plan to allow the Weissen military more autonomy relied on his knowledge that Baltzar, out of desire to minimize bloodshed, would report to his superiors of a planned coup by officer cadets resulting in the suicides of the conspirators which would in turn inspire nationalist and military pride in the citizens. It worked.]]
** [[spoiler: As revealed in chapter 16, Rudolph is responsible for starting a second war between Weissen and Holbaek over the Norden-Trade Duchy by providing Holbaek with war funds. Baltzar and Reiner were deliberately kept in the dark on international developments by the General Staff Chief during the secret negotiations, so that Reiner would willingly sign a military alliance with Weissen.]]

* WarIsHell: Hooo boy. This manga does not shy away from many horrors faced by soldiers and civilians alike. Soldiers fears death (obviously) and hunger if being separated from logistics.
