I’ve been thinking about switching my sign off from Deus Vult to Gott Mit Uns.
There’s a couple of reasons to do this.
-It’s German and therefore more likely to piss off random people on the internet. (Especially Germans.)
-More of a common soldier’s proclamation than Deus Vult.
-The phrase is associated with Richard Fox’s awesome The Ember War series.
-Sabaton (a reason all by itself.)
Deus Vult something you scream before taking action. Usually violent or decisive action (Broadswords and hand grenades optional.)
Gott Mit Uns is a group of guys gritting their teeth, looking at each other nervously, before going ‘hey we got this.’
Anyway it’s a useful phrase to add to your online banter and memetic warfare.
