thus the Triple Alliance . The Emperor Francis
Joseph (AH) may be rest assured that His Majesty
will faithfully stand by Austria-Hungary, as is

Napoleon Crossing the Alps By Jacques-Louis
David (1800)
Rupert Brooke The Soldier
  • If I should die, think only this of me That
    there's some corner of a foreign field That is
    forever England. There shall be In that rich
    earth a richer dust concealed A dust whom
    England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her
    flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body of
    England's, breathing English air, Washed by the
    rivers, blest by suns of home. And think, this
    heart, all evil shed away, A pulse in the eternal
    mind, no less Gives somewhere back the thoughts
    by England given Her sights and sounds dreams
    happy as her day And laughter, learnt of
    friends and gentleness, In hearts at peace,
    under an English heaven.
