Frequently Asked Questions...

What people would have thought if you were a 30 year old man in good health at home in Germany during in 1915?

were there many young men at home really in Germany in WW1? how people would have thought if they saw a 25 or 35 year old man at home in Germany , drinking at a pub etc? and why? what happened if skipped the war?

how different in Britain? or France or Russia and why?


Best Answer...

Answer:

The Army of the German Empire had a draft of two years for every man between the ages of 17 and 45. This means that every 30 year old man, who had no disabilities or had committed any serious crime, would have been a Reservist. When Germany went to war they mobilized all Reservists with the exception of civilians who were deemed important for the war effort (doctors, administrative clerks, workers in factories producing wartime goods, etc).
If your hypothetical 30 year old man had no visible disabilities he would have simply been seen as a man who was important enough to stay home.

And for your second part of your question: The support for the war in the population had been VERY high in 1914, which meant that draft dodgers would have been very rare.
