Abstract

This colelction of 18 essays examines the change from nineteenth-century agricultural elite armies to twentieth-century industrial mass armies following World War 1. Beginning with the problem of how armies had been raised since ancient times, the authors then turn to examine and analyze the various armies of Germany, France, Poland, tsarist Russia , Britain, and others, looking at not only laws that were in place but the social structures that supported them.

Translated Title Conscription: Formation, appearance and political-military effect
