Are you sure?
In 1973 the Opera Rara contribution to the Camden Festival was an even greater triumph: Offenbach's Robinson Crusoe, translated by Don White with some splendid jokes, including the immortal one-liner offered by the cannibals' cook, "Shepherds' pie with real shepherds."
When they did it in Austria, the line became "Jägerschnitzel, mit echte Jäger".

In the same vein, the Nazi "Wehrmacht" means, literally, "defense force". So they were merely defending themselves all along.
