The term "Deutsches Heer" is also used for the modern German Army, the land component of the German Bundeswehr.

Famous quotes containing the words army and/or german:
“An army is maintained for a thousand days all to be used on one morning.”
“She had exactly the German way: whatever was in her mind to be delivered, whether a mere remark, or a sermon, or a cyclopedia, or the history of a war, she would get it into a single sentence or die. Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side of the Atlantic with his verb in his mouth.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
