Example text

E già a Liegi, Liegi è il paese più vicino ad Aquisgrana, più vicino al confine tedesco, si erano trovati di fronte ad una resistenza micidiale. C. La località più ad ovest del Belgio capitola il 15 novembre: quindi tra il 20 agosto e il 15 novembre i tedeschi sono inchiodati sul territorio belga... altro che guerralampo! Le sei settimane, in cui dovevano capitolare addirittura Parigi, Nancy e non so quali altre località della Francia, sono svanite, sono state bruciate attraverso una campagna in Belgio durissima e assolutamente inaspettata per l’alto comando.

In sostanza la ragione della implacabile ostilità verso il Bonaparte era stata esattamente questa: Bonaparte aveva fatto tanti passi avanti per smussare il carattere, per così dire, incendiario della rivoluzione da cui il suo potere era sorto. Ma questo non era mai bastato e l’Inghilterra non ha accettato l’egemonia francese sul continente, che era l’altra faccia della creazione dell’impero francese. Così, ora non può accettare che l’impero tedesco vada oltre i confini della Germania, che si piazzi sulla Manica: questo è un punto dal quale non può recedere.

Ormai, la Germania, che era anche il paese con la più grande classe intellettuale universitaria d’Europa, maestra di dottrina a tutto il resto d’Europa, appariva in una luce sinistra nel momento in cui non soltanto colpiva gli eserciti avversari, non soltanto terrorizzava la popolazione civile, ma addirittura cercava di ferire il paese che prendeva di mira nelle sue strutture intellettuali, falcidiandone il personale accademico. Ecco, questa è una novità nel comportamento degli aggressori, e questo non mancò ovviamente di suscitare una reazione più specifica del mondo intellettuale europeo, quella che fu definita all’epoca «la guerra degli spiriti» – dove per «spiriti» s’intendono i grandi intellettuali, gli accademici, i letterati – «la guerra degli spiriti», una guerra in cui l’intellighentsia di tutti i paesi in lotta si impegnò nelle forme che sono facilmente immaginabili, cioè quelle appunto degli «appelli», appelli all’opinione pubblica mondiale.
