Military Review

Chinese generals were ordered to be privates

77
Chinese generals were ordered to be privatesChinese leader Xi Jinping ordered the generals and senior army officers to serve as ordinary soldiers for two weeks.


An unexpected order to all officers from the lieutenant colonel and above to become a private at the time is part of a campaign to raise morale among the troops.

The temporary reduction of the status of military leadership has not been applied in China for more than 50 years, since the time of Mao Zedong.

In 1958, Mao said that senior officials should serve as privates for a month each year.

In this way, Mao strengthened control over the armed forces, and many marshals and generals retired or left the country.

BBC China Service Editor Shizhun Chen says that Xi Jinping, who became president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces only last month, is trying to embody Mao’s ideas in reforming the army.

According to analysts, this decision Xi Jinping is trying to demonstrate that he feels confident enough in his post and is ready to show his power to the army ranks - one of the most influential groups in the country.

No banquets and gifts

Social network users in China are already wondering how warlords, who are used to banquets, will cope with morning drill, training marches and the cleaning of barracks.

Analysts also note that promotion in the Chinese army depends largely on personal or family ties, and a significant percentage of the high command advanced in their service so quickly that they almost did not experience the difficulties of army life in their entire career.

Xi Jinping became the head of the armed forces last month and has already begun to reform them
The decree does not indicate how severe the 15-day service will be in the ranks for generals and officers. It is only said that for this period officers and generals must "live, eat and serve" along with the rank and file.

"They should provide themselves with everything they need, and also pay for food. They should not accept invitations to banquets, go on excursions, accept gifts or interfere with the routine of the unit," said a statement from the Chinese Ministry of Defense.

Macau-based military expert Anthony Wong Dong said that although the new decree is similar to Mao's directives, Xi Jinping is sincere in his desire to reform the army.

"Lack of discipline, corruption and the gap between officers and soldiers have become commonplace in the Chinese army, which threaten its effectiveness. Xi is aware of this and is trying to solve this problem."

            For example, in the entire royal army. There was an official system of "uncles" - old-timers, obliged to make soldiers a young recruiting. To be a soldier means to be a person who will not break when a real battle is put on his psyche. Explosions, fire, shooting, everyone is trying to kill you ... especially those really scary guys from the opposite trenches.
            What do you think, training in digging trenches and mastering military equipment will help turn a young man, only from his mother and grandmother, into a warrior who will keep his psyche at the time of the battle? Maybe you need hardening? Strong pressure to be resisted, and not just to resist, but to learn, improve, grow?
            Our army was radically weakened by the struggle against bullying. Although - weakened earlier. When the officers left who understood what hazing was and why it was needed. They controlled this most important component of combat training. And it instantly turned into a meaningless, shameful sadism ...

              And my dad, who served on the Karelian Isthmus and then visited Budapest in the late 50s, said that they had no hazing. And I myself did not know what it was, although I served at the turn of the 70s and 80s in Chechnya. Hazing is the killing of a warrior.

        Without hazing is impossible. To be a grandfather does not mean to beat and cripple the young, but to teach! And drive to the fullest so that mother’s pies come out later! Accustom to cleanliness, that he himself clean, shaved walked and so that the barracks were clean.
        No need to do kindergarten from the army! I came to serve in the army, so serve and do not complain that it’s hard for you! Yes, and now they are fed normally in the army.

        But "sons" in the army are necessary, here I completely agree with you.

        Well, they told you that we are not the 37th year, it was only then that the children of tyrants considered it an honor to serve in the Red Army, and even really participate in the hostilities in the war. One word - satraps laughing well, the hands of the Beria’s guardsmen didn’t reach well, for example, to Lyubimov, so he sang or danced, I don’t know, in the NKVD ensemble. while Vasya Stalin “sat out” in the aviation regiment.

        I don’t know about the children of officials, but the children of generals go to the army and even die ... Perhaps the children of officials too.

        During the war in Chechnya in the 1994-1996 years the sons died:

        Lieutenant General ANOSHIN Gennady Yakovlevich;
        Major General NALETOV Gennady Afanasevich;
        Lieutenant General SUSLOV Vyacheslav Fedorovich;
        Lieutenant General of PULIKOVSKY Konstantin Borisovich;
        Major General Anatoly Mikhailovich FILIPENK;
        Major General of Aviation Anatoly Chigashov;
        Colonel General Shpak Georgy Ivanovich.
        Lieutenant General SCHEPINA Yuri.

        In 1999, the son of Lieutenant General SOLOMATIN Viktor Alexandrovich was killed in Chechnya.

      As I read it, at first I did not believe it, then I was very surprised at the wisdom of the Chinese Prime Minister - with one indication he will achieve a lot of good, including even greater respect for soldiers and officers to each other. It remains only to dream that we would have this too.

      No, these hangers-on would quickly create "His Majesty's parquet regiment" and honestly there would rest 15 days a year showing everyone that they also eat from a soldier's pot. And the rest of the time there would have been children, children of their friends and other majors serving there. This would have been the most glamorous regiment in the entire army of the Russian Federation.

      It is worth clarifying a little, because the misconception that the old form is supposedly from Yudashkin constantly pops up. She is NOT from Yudashkin. Yudashkinskaya, both in style, in cut and in materials, is completely different, but what the soldiers dressed in is the work of specialized research institutes, which Yudashkinskaya was seriously remade. The reason for its disgust is precisely in the quality of manufacture. I did not hear complaints that she was allegedly cold, because the myth was from the journalist, and Denis Mokrushin, no matter how many soldiers he interviewed, was warm to everyone. Another thing is that it is washed out white for a year and fades with spots.

      I am joining. We also had examples in history: Suvorov and many great generals were among their soldiers — they ate together, slept like soldiers, knew many soldiers by name, fought shoulder to shoulder, and much more. And so I represent our obese generals and officers temporarily becoming soldiers pulling themselves up on the horizontal bar, on march-throws, etc. It would be very useful for us to introduce such temporary reductions too, after such temporary reductions, there would be more order, so to speak, to feel for ourselves if you forgot all the charms of the soldier’s service

        It all depends on how they are implemented. Suvorov then with Kutuzov might have eaten with soldiers from the same pot, but at the same time remained generals. And then the generals officially become ordinary, that is, any corporal can send them to hell or order the earth to hug, which is not buzzing.

    Ah, well done!
    But interestingly, how much does the general cost the state? 100 generals * 2 weeks = 200 weeks 4 years the general is scrubbing the barracks and peeling potatoes, is it expensive?

    This will not help with us! half will not come, he’ll lie in the hospital, and the second worse than the “grandfathers”, because everyone will understand that TOMORROW the generals will again become generals ... In other matters, like in China ... This is an exclusively political campaign with the goal of earning loyalty of the lower ranks of the army and some other tasks to solve ...

    A very useful order for all generals of all countries, without exception. True, there is a danger that some generals will die on the first march of the throw. What to do? Natural choices should be the same in the army. Otherwise, it will be anything, but not the army.

      I also remember other stupidities in the GDR - there was a period when our cars shot down German trains :) and there was an order - the senior car was no lower than the major - before moving out of the car go on foot itself and then regulate the transition of the car through the crossing. We also laughed - that the senior barrier is not lower than the rank of major :)

    In 1958, Mao said that senior officials should serve as privates for a month each year.
    In this way, Mao strengthened control over the armed forces, and many marshals and generals retired or left the country.


    After the war, Rokossovsky also drove off the Polish generals with a march. The result was an attempt on Rokossovsky.

    It was not surprising that another idea was stolen again, but the fact that high-ranking Chinese are hanging around on our site!
    I suggested this idea for the Russian generals in my commentary on the article on survival centers - as a way, not to forget what the soldier’s blood and sweat smells like.

    About 20 meters from us, we took a decisive and broad step Zhukov.
    He immediately jumped over a meter-long ditch. But some generals with an abdomen fell into the ditch.
    Thereafter Zhukov introduced the so-called “Indian hour” in the troops (during a visit to India, the marshal noted that the "overseas" officers regularly played sports).
    Six days a week, units conducted hourly drill and gunnery classes among officers, regardless of position and age.
    We saw how every morning the generals did exercises, pulled themselves up on the horizontal bars ... hi

    ... we will win, I will come to you on a hot war elephant ... laughing

    I didn’t hear to regret, I didn’t know, but if we had such an innovation, the commander’s hut would not have turned back to the personnel but before and there would have been no hazing who remembers her, it ended in a period of glasnost and reigned outrage which was inappropriately confused with hazing

    I do not really believe that their entire generals will rush to do this in a friendly and meek manner. I think they’ll come up with a bunch of ways to dodge or pretend.
    For some reason, our people are accustomed to believe that abroad there are only angels and life there is like Christ’s bosom, and in their own country only bastards and thieves.
    This is what emotions say in you, not reason) It is not for nothing mentioned in the article about the great corruption and nepotism in China. So, I don’t think there will be such kindness as you described here. It will be like everywhere else - the elite are above, the bottoms are from below, and it does not mix.

    It seems to me that this is generally a slogan for the masses, rather than a real attempt to lower generals from heaven. However, how actually it will pass we are unlikely to know.

    The idea is too beautiful for the truth.

    Hazing was only in those parts where commanders are mediocrity or drunk.


    Hazing to one degree or another was in all parts and, by and large, it was a certain tool of discipline in parts, which officers reasonably used. And in those parts that you are talking about, there was chaos of pure water, where discipline issues were left to the very same “grandfathers” without the participation of the officers themselves.

    For the USSR Armed Forces, such a move by Mao was not needed. Just because the officers, during their training, take such a course of a young soldier 4 years long that memory remains for life. And then, company-battalion officers all the service next to the soldiers and live and chew. From one PCB they feed, lie down last, get up first. I was the first to come to the captain to rise in the company. Well, already at the regimental level, sorry and age, and rank and other tasks and responsibilities. And even the fat-bellied ones were few in the regiment, since the checks were handed over and running, jumping, shooting along with the soldiers. In the NFP and other instructions and instructions, officers have more stringent conditions than ordinary soldiers. I think everything remains in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. And the Chinese probably have a different training program for officers. If anyone in the know can tell me.
