Friedrich Nietzsche is discharged from the German army. He enlisted just last year and has served in the cavalry company of an artillery regiment in Naumburg, Germany, but he was injured severely in the chest when thrown from his horse in March 1868.

The injury is too severe to permit active duty upon recovery, so he returns to Leipzig to resume his studies. While there he will discover the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer and the music of Richard Wagner.
