The symphony begins with three short notes followed by one long one. Three dots and a dash is the Morse Code for the letter V. V is the Roman numeral for five (the Fifth Symphony) and stands for victory. All of that was just such a coincindence that it was irresistable in the popular imagination. It was also just too delicious an irony to use one of the great achievements of German culture as a symbol against the Germans.Michael Montagne
