Why not? Am I not allowed to voice my opinion that both wars were terrible for the common soldier?

Sure, but you can expect annoyed reactions  :P

Neither because both sucked.
Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.

I think there should be a thread about war itself (there are loads of I know) where the question can be discussed which reasons you have to fight in a war then and now and also from today's and the former perspective.

For example I believe I would have fought in the Napoleonic Wars if I had lived at that time because I'd have been convinced that I have to fight for my land/family/country.
From today's perspective a war like 200 years ago in Europe is not possible especially because the people would not see any reason for it.

Well, if we go that way - I don't think many Americans can claim that they wouldn't fight in the ACW. Social pressure was enormous, and really, these men had no idea of how horrible war was. Plus, Americans tend to be 'patriotic'.

As for the Napoleonics - I dunno. Maybe I'd have 'fought' in the liberation war, but joining the army...meh. Might have gotten conscripted, though.

Im pretty certain if I was living at the time I would have enlisted just like every other man did. Granted I totally would not go back in time to fight in the war if I had the choice.

Hopefully I wouldn't end up being one of those guys who bring the 1,000 man regiment do to 300 strength.
Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.
