Flagellum Dei

Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, June 20, 451

'Huns, Here you stand after victories over many nations and after conquering the world. For what is war to you but a way of life? What is more satisfying for a brave man than to seek revenge with his own hand? Nature imposes on us this heavy duty: to glut our souls with vengeance. Let us attack the enemy keenly, for those who press on with the battle are always bolder. Let the wounded claim in recompense the death of the opponent; Let those who are unharmed glory in the slaughter of our enemy. I shall strike the first blow at the foe. If any man can stand unmoved while Attila fights, then he must already be dead!''
