Herman Joachim Bang was a Danish author, journalist, lecturer and theater director. He was born on the island of Als near the site of the Danish defeat by Prussian forces in 1864 (Second Schleswig War). In the introduction to his novel, Tine (1889), he cites as formative for his writing the experience of the war and the sound of the Danish troops’ retreat.
