拉法耶特传记阅读笔记

这个人简直是天使吧!!!

标了一些阅读过程中很戳我的句子和一些书摘

(laf真好真好真好,和华盛顿爸爸也很有爱x

传记书名:Lafayette: Lessons in Leadership from the Idealist General


“The moment I heard of America, I loved her; the moment I knew she was fighting for freedom, I burnt with a desire of bleeding for her.”


“My respects for the rights and conveniences of the citizens cannot be equaled but by my zeal to forward every means of securing their freedom.”

  看这篇传记戳爆我的两句话,laf他太真诚了(语无伦次


But unlike most military men, he was largely able to employ the same strategic skill in politics. On three occasions over a span of a half century Lafayette was there, at the crucial moment, to shape the emergence of democracy and liberal government. No military leader has done more.

(我吹爆政治军事双全的laf!

When in 1917 the American forces under General Pershing arrived in France, there were cries of “Lafayette, we are here.” Our first wartime air element bore his name as the “Lafayette Escadrille.” He not only bridged two nations, he helped form them.

(这个就是一战时美国军队抵达法国时的口号,“拉法耶特,我们来了!”laf他真是呜呜

He proved time and again that he was willing to put his life on the line in pursuit of his beliefs.


小时候:He was the pampered young male heir—a handsome, red-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned boy who ran wild in the forests and along the village’s streets, wooden sword in hand, playing war games with the peasant boys of the town.(这个叶子太可爱了吧xx


拉法耶特不是很能喝,跳舞很烂。他就是不适合(我爆笑哈哈哈哈哈)Lafayette was not a big drinker, and he was a bad dancer. He simply did not fit in. 


在回忆录里赞美华盛顿爸爸:“Although he was surrounded by officers and citizens, it was impossible to mistake for a moment his majestic figure and deportment; nor was he less distinguished by the noble affability of his manner,” Lafayette wrote in his memoirs of that first encounter.


没有记错的话是在一次battle中叶子受伤了,然后然后这是华盛顿爸爸说的:Lafayette wrote in his memoirs that as he was led away, he heard Washington say, “Treat him as if he were my son.”


仍是回忆录里写到的:“I seem to have had an anticipation of our future friendship, and what I have done out of esteem and respect for your excellency’s name and reputation, I should do now out of mere love for General Washington himself.”13 Lafayette left Albany for Valley Forge on March 31, 1778.


“No one is in a better position than this young general officer,” d’Estaing wrote to the French naval minister, “to become an additional bond of unity between France and America.”(这里第二次提到拉法耶特是美法两国的纽带了qwq!


还有一点关于ham评价华盛顿的:

“I never saw the general to so much advantage,” Alexander Hamilton later wrote. “His coolness and firmness were admirable. He instantly took maneuvers for checking the enemy’s advance and giving time for the army, which was very near, to form and make a proper disposition.”
