On the psychology and life of the military generation in the USSR and Germany of the 1920 era

Russia after the First World War was actually the only country that was de jure defeated by the defeated. Such a legal incident occurred in connection with the signing of the Brest Peace Agreement in March 1918, when Russia was already Soviet.


Revolution, big war. All this, by definition, could not but affect the people who lived in those days. According to historians and psychologists, many members of the elites were largely influenced by the factors that they had to face in the 20s.

This is especially noticeable in what happened after the First World War in Germany. Defeat in a big war, economic decline formed a generation of people who yearned for a certain revenge. It is well known today what all this ultimately resulted in in Germany - the coming to power of an odious figure and the subsequent surge of radical nationalism.

And what is characteristic of the same generation of Soviet citizens?

Expert Artyom Drabkin reflects on the life of the military generation of citizens of the Soviet Union and Germany. He shares his opinion on the air of TacticMedia:

    All the same, you need to grow up in your expressions. Talking about the "Soviet bourgeoisie" and comparing the citizens of Germany and the Soviet people. Germany, absorbing help from all over the world, was preparing for war. The USSR, knowing that war would be inevitable, did what he could in order not to perish under German boot. On the Soviet "bourgeoisie". Even if she was starving, it would not make life easier for the Soviet people. After all, over the years you can trace how the people's well-being grew. And it could not grow immediately. Now you can hear that the Soviet people after the revolution was a "consumable", and then became a "cog" in the life of the USSR. Sometimes the work of the whole mechanism rests on a screw. Let them name the country where this is not so.

    Artyom Drabkin. "I fought at a wedding."

    Excuse me, but consider him as an expert ... Although, of course, everyone is free to evaluate him in his own way.

And where did the tests come from from America, their military psychologists methodology .....

        under tsarism, apparently ..... In the white and red armies, they fought, I do not argue, without psychologists ..... And the fact that the test results were confirmed is an accident, the psychologist guessed .........
