Friedrich von Bernhardi (November 22, 1849, Russian Empire—December 11, 1930) was a German militarist, perhaps best known for his bellicose book Deutschland und der Nächste Krieg (Germany and the Next War), printed in 1912. He advocated a policy of ruthless aggression and complete disregard of treaties and regarded war as a "divine business". As of 1935 he was generally supposed to be the spokesman of German feeling prior to 1914.
