I had never heard about Albert Schlageter until I picked up a porcelain medal that honored him. Wikipedia has a fascinating entry at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Leo_Schlageter

Basically Schlageter never quit fighting WWI and continued to fight the French in the Ruhr, including sabotage. He was betrayed and put to death by the occupying French. A martyr was created.............. fascinating!!
