VON MOLTKE'S STATUE ON BREMEN'S CATHEDRAL WALL The memory of no man is greener in Germany than that of Gen. Hel muth Carl Bernhard von Moltke, the great strategist, who was for 30 years chief of staff of the Prussian army and who directed the campaigns of 1870. Although an accomplished linguist, he was so habitually reserved that he was said to have been "silent in seven languages."
