comment When did the parole of prisoners of war become unacceptable?
@Lohoris Yes. These "barbaric" states took a honest world very seriously. I have read about cases when they went into beforehand lost battles in order not to give such word.

comment Are there cases of U.S. Founding Fathers burning flags of other nations?
Sorry, but a flag of a regiment or other military unit was very important thing for the regiment far before nationalism. So, a flag could be destroyed because of some deeds of a unit. It WOULD be taken as a punishment. And that flag was a state flag of the appropriate state. But of course, it was not a NATION flag, for there were no nations.

comment Could an enlisted soldier in German Imperial Army get rank above Gefreiter?
It should be so, because I remember from Hindenburg biography that he despised Hitler for reaching only Gefreiter rank in such a great war. I think, German marshal should know the rules...

So, it seems, the wiki errs: that rule worked only in peace times. So, it could not work till 1918, but only till 1914.

@Kobunite Thank you. I have read the article, too. The problem is, how erroneous is it. As for your message, I know that volunteers had special rights to become an officer later. But never had I read that you had to be a volunteer to become a corporal.
