I wrote a poem in order to remember this emotion (pleased of the victory, grieve over the dead) and inquired Zhang to paint "Feather of Cloud"-named after Do-Pu's praise to Chu-Ga Lian, "Feather of Cloud Forever" Von Rundstedt ,Commander-in-Chief of Germany forces in the West, after being captured in bath Toelz, said to reporters, 'The reason why Germany attacked Russia and not England was because we were held back due to England's strong navy forces."
