XPH312453 'He can't have seen very many canonballs' (oil on canvas) by Rode, Christian Bernhard (1725-97); Gemaldegalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Germany; ( Der muss noch nicht viele Kanonenkugeln gesehen haben; Anecdote auf den Bayerischen Erbfolgekrieg; anecdote on the War of the Bavarian Succession that occurred in 1778 and 1779; aka the Potato War, 'Kartoffelkrieg'; Friedrich der Grosse und der Feldscher; Frederick the Great and the Combat Medic; In the 1778 campaign, the king once had his blood let. On the same day there was a cannonade with the enemy which grew so strong that the king found it necessary to ride out himself. The movement caused his vein to open up. The king dismounted from his horse and had his vein bound up by a company medic who was there by chance. A cannonball hit next to him; the medic was startled and trembling; the king, smiling, said to those around them: 'He must not have seen many cannonballs up to now.); German, out of copyright
