Alfred composes another letter to Hannelore. He tells her he feels his friendship with Florian has developed. He also tells her about his potential medal. He ends the letter reminding Hannelore that “everything I achieve, everything I have done, it is all for you. For you and for Germany.”
Although Alfred says he is motivated by his love for Hannelore and Germany, in his thoughts it is clear he is motivated by love for himself.
