The quote is actually far older than that.
Different versions of it have been traced as far back as the Romans..

Another one, often used in Infantryunits is: "Klagt nicht, Kämpft!" (Don´t Complain, Fight!)

The Motto of the Officer School of the German Army is: "In Freiheit dienen!" (Serve in Liberty!)

The one of the Officer School of the German Air Force is: "Ich Will!" (I Want!)

And the Motto of the Air Defence Missile Units at German Air Force is "Missile Away!"

"Dran, drauf, drüber" ( hard to translate: near,on and above)
I have it as "Drauf, dran, drüber, hurra! hurra! hurra!" (on it, at it, over it).

Not a "motto", but also often heard: "Ohne Mapf kein Kampf!" (withoud food not ifhgt)

The Jäger Truppe uses aswell Klagt Nicht kämpft - Dont complain - FIGHT x3

uvm there is a endless list of official Motto's every Battalion and platoon has ther own motto aswell.

Topic: "dran, drauf, druber," is old Saxon, or low German

The best answer for what this means is simply this: In German, "Dran! Drauf! Drüber!“ "Ran an den Feind, drauf auf den Feind, hinweg über den Feind." English: It means, "Run at" the enemy, "strike at" the enemy, and "continue on over" the enemy."

Also, "Gluck ab" is a German paratrooper greeting. A derivative of "Good luck."

The true German paratrooper motto is "Treue um Treue," which doesn't translate exactly, but is "Loyalty "begets," or "surrounds" Loyalty."
