Did some soldiers actually enjoy going to war like in my video gaymes?

Did some soldiers actually enjoy going to war like in my video gaymes? The bots I command seem so energetic and happy when they fight in this civil war simulator I play.

    no, it was terrible, you'd watch your friends die screaming in agony and you might too one day, you'd be freezing cold and get dysentry, the music and upbeat attitude were more of a cope

    There's always a couple dudes who live their best on a battlefield. Sometimes they're actual psychos but a lot of the time they just enjoy the grind

    It really differs between individuals and their personal experience. For some soldiers it was a grand adventure. For others, it was traumatizing and nightmarish. Read Storm of Steel and All Quiet on the Western Front sequentially to understand the two sides of the coin.

    Of course. It's like with jocks on the football field having fun, yeah some of them get injured but it's all part of the game. But then the nerds who are traumatized by everything get to write the history on how everything is so barbaric and miserable.

      This, nerds aren't suited for war, just draft the jocks and send them to the meat grinder, I'm sure they'll enjoy it.

    >waiting to be blown up by artillery in a muddy trench

      Most medieval soldiers died of disease.
      And storming the trenches with shells going off all around you is a kind of rush like no other. People get addicted to that shit.

    Rolling up and sacking a city with the boys is much different than being blown up in some random backwater for ephemeral goals.

    It's like the interviews with all the viet cong. They lived under absolutely atrocious conditions but they had a reason to be there

    I think most men liked the camaraderie and doing military things. Traveling must have been seen as fun too. However, it sucked ass the moment you got shot at or had to face death. I don’t think anyone liked that part.

    I prefer Grand Tactician:Civil War. Nothing quite like burning Atlanta, and Richmond, and Chattanooga, and, and New Orleans, and Columbia while my army universally equipped with sharps rifles and carbines and parrot rifles mows through confederates who’ve degenerated to the point of borderline guerrilla warfare.

      No one has read this book.
      There is no enjoyment or glorification there, just a pretty dull, cold account. He wasn't phased by it.

          No, he is just a dull, autistic military guy.
          Literally couldn't understand why the French were so emotional about getting invaded.

            Sure was dull, that must be why he was a beloved poet and author.

            Just give me one passage from Storm of Steel where he describes the action in a furious or passionate way or loving war in some way. It's just not there, it's a cold, clinical, largely indifferent account.

    Learning to be a good commander is essentially learning how to send men who are scared shitless of dying into a position where they are likely to die in such a way that they scare away the other guys before they themselves get scared away.

    Nope.

    The people who survive war say they find it miserable enough. And the people who die in battle presumably like it even less.

    Depends on battlefield. I'm italian and my grandfathers and other men who served in WW2 would speak fondly of the african campaign showing us photos and telling us tales but wouldn't utter a word about the campaign in Russia.

    In older wars i would assume a vast majority hated it. I was in Iraq 2016 and Afghanistan 2018 with 10th mountain division. Honestly it was a great time. We had a couple casualties, only two KIA. I dont know how i wouldve reacted if my bros were dying all around me. But personally war was a great time 8/10
