Der Todesmut = literally “death courage”, as in true heroism, the highest personal courage, courage in the face of death. Also in military sense, great gallantry. When a person is very brave and is willing to give their life for a cause or maybe for another person. Someone who jumps in head first to help, with total disregard for their own safety. The picture of a brave idealist.
