Minna Von Barnhelm
Minna von Barnhelm or the Soldiers' Happiness (German: Minna von Barnhelm oder das Soldatenglück) is a lustspiel or comedy by the German author Gotthold Ephraim Lessing. It has five acts, was begun in 1763 and completed in 1767 – its author put the year 1763 on the official title page, presumably to emphasize that the recent Seven Years' War plays a major part in the play, which is set on 22 August 1763. It is one of the most important comedies in German literature[citation needed].Contents1 Plot 2 Performance history 3 Adaptations3.1 Musical 3.2 Film4 References 5 External linksPlot[edit] Wounded and dishonourably discharged from the Prussian Army

The ISBN is ten digits long if assigned before 2007, and thirteen digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007.
