      In the third photo, officers and soldiers communicate in a fraternal way. And we were told from childhood - the officers beat the soldiers on the cheeks with kid gloves. I remember the film "Chapaev", the general at the piano and the soldier rubbing the parquet.

        -What is there that the Soviet era was then mythologized, how. And here is the first world war. Although ... Zhukov has in his memoirs about the assault when he was young. Then Gorbatov has it. Not everywhere officers, felbelies loved to wave their fists. This is so offhand. So that everywhere was different. Everything depended on the fathers of the commanders.

          Sometimes it’s better to go to the soldier’s face rather than give it to the tribunal. There are different situations, maybe the servant knows what, and the court only breaks your life.

        Yes, maybe the officers beat me, I’ll even say the others probably beat. Those were pure nobles. In the photo, most likely, lieutenants and second lieutenants who received ranks at accelerated courses and themselves, not far from the soldier, left.

        This is a brotherhood at the front, for a monster-officer can get a bullet, who will understand why he died in the bustle of battle. Moreover, the danger of death on the front line involuntarily brings both a soldier and an officer. Well, at headquarters and in peacetime there was everything, including assault. He was lying with a retired colonel (an Afghan veteran) and put us in a ward with conscripts. His indignation knew no bounds. Me an officer and conscripts in the ward ?! The same was true for eating. When a couple of conscripts were transferred to the dining room for counter and officers to save us, and they sat down with us, the colonel almost choked on such arrogance, and then said that he had eaten along with the fighters in Afghanistan on a campaign, and now let me. By the way, he told how the soldiers fawned, but this is a necessary measure, because until you slap them on the forehead they do not move and listen to the father-commander. Good things are impossible with them. At first, only after school I stopped all manifestations of assault and hazing, and after a while I realized that it was a mistake, because the young people felt impunity and completely unbelted. They scored on everything and everyone. And in the conditions of military operations this is very fraught. I had to revive the recent foundations. So I think then everything was. And fiends, and normal officers, and conscious soldiers, and those without a pistol, like without a carrot.

      recently stumbled upon Solzhenitsyn's "In August 14th", I liked it very much. Solzhenitsyn definitely loved Russia and was an ardent patriot.
      Since tsarism led the WWII, you can’t fight, but this was already a systemic flaw that cannot be eliminated.
      one thing pleases, the Russian soldier, as always, is beyond praise, and this is fucked up, I consider it systemic, plus

        Well, read about the geopolitical interests of the leading countries of that time, everything has long been painted and dismantled. It’s just that, as always, our people went on the offensive when Paris was hanging by a thread, but when Germany delivered the main blow to us, they wanted to spit, sat in the trenches and said they were not ready for the offensive. And so, the Russian army by knockout method, in general, made Austria-Hungary incapable, and the Turks were also driven.

      Why Eastern Front? On whose side did the author of the material fight? Was it possible that these photographs were collected by a German?

        Since, in the Russian Empire, a revolution began, and then a civil war, the Western Allies simply wrote off our country from the list of victorious countries, so it was like some kind of eastern front and that’s it, And our old allies answered with an intervention, and the interventionists are not red they didn’t finish it, they didn’t help the whites; in general, they were only happy to bring chaos and collapse and confusion into the former Russian empire even more. Well, turn into an underdeveloped country.
