  2. I remember from the movie The Red Baron, a true story about Manfred von Richthofen who was the number one (pilot) ace of WW1, that he was asked how come he always won, and he responded: “When I know I can’t win, I simply fly away”. So, seemingly he did what you advice, only picking battles “small” enough that he could win them. Also, that gave him more practice and experience than anyone else. Now of course, war is a tragic thing, but still that anecdote came to mind. Also, an interesting aspect, he always aimed at damaging the plane just enough so that it could land, but not killing the pilot. All in all meaning he is one of few “modern” wartime figures Germans truly can be proud of, standing for humane values.
