Publicidade

Otto Skorzeny foi um oficial da Schutzstaffel, especialista em operações especiais durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. Era considerado pelos Aliados como "o homem mais perigoso da Europa". Tal fama era devida às várias operações de sabotagem, espionagem e resgate comandadas por ele, como a Operação Greif, durante a Batalha das Ardenas e a Operação Carvalho, a libertação de Benito Mussolini após a capitulação da Itália.

Citações Otto Skorzeny

„My knowledge of pain, learned with the sabre, taught me not to be afraid.“

— Otto Skorzeny
Context: My knowledge of pain, learned with the sabre, taught me not to be afraid. And just as in dueling when you must concentrate on your enemy's cheek, so, too, in war. You cannot waste time on feinting and sidestepping. You must decide on your target and go in. Comparing his dueling days with commando tactics, as quoted in Skorzeny (1972) by Charles Whiting, p. 17.

„War is inevitable, and this time, it will be truly world wide. It will unravel everywhere and there will be no limit to its battlefields.“

— Otto Skorzeny
Context: War is inevitable, and this time, it will be truly world wide. It will unravel everywhere and there will be no limit to its battlefields. The condemnations of Nuremberg will be one of the main reasons, which will cause this war to be a conflict whose horror will be unparalleled. These condemnations gave birth, in fact, to a new conception which makes the victor a hero and the vanquished an odious criminal. By this fact, each leader will wage war like a demon in order not to be the loser and become, consequently, a criminal. All the atrocities that can be imagined by man, will be committed during this next war, in order to prevent the enemy from acquiring victory. What I have just said, I have repeated to the American representatives and I have warned them that all of the mothers of the entire world will one day curse America. Interviewed by the Agence France Presse (AFP), in Cairo (30 January 1953), quoted in an article in Le Monde, entitled "Les Condamnations de Nuremberg seront responsible de l'horreur de la prochaine guerre, affirme Otto Skorzeny."
