The album's title is an allusion to Leo Tolstoy's novel War and Peace, in which Mikhail Kutuzov, the commander of the Russian army, promises to build Napoleon and the French army a "golden bridge" out of Russia - that is, to allow the French to continue on their hasty retreat without attempting to do battle, which would only delay the eventual end of the war and bring about needless destruction and loss of life.
