Friedrich starts off enthousiastic: he drives in the modern time in a modern invention, the automobile with fiftyfive horsepowers.But while he is driving to the front, he sees the landscape changing. The car creates a distance between his happiness, behind, and he drives into the dark, with battles and misery
