    On hearing the tales, Wilhelmine exclaims in horror how “wicked” it all is. But the grandfather shushes her saying that it actually wasn’t as it was for a “famous victory.” Kaspar glorifies war instead of accepting it as a mean of physical and psychological trauma. Unlike his little granddaughter, he is oblivious to the truth and lives under the illusions created by the rulers of the time. Due to this mindset, all the matters to Old Kaspar was victory only.
