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.

comment Most fought over piece of land?
The question asks the most years with war. It doesn't say anything on how many battles there were in one year.

comment Most fought over piece of land?
All destroys, sieges and capturing started from attack. And 55 attacks? Not much really. In Stalingrad there were several attacks a day in many places and the uninterrupted battle lasted 23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943. All victim of Jerusalem's battles would fit into one Stalingrad's day. All battles of the far past were merely a handful of combats in comparison with WWI and II.

comment Are there any communist leaders without a record of acts we consider as a crime (against humanity)?
In post-communism lands there happen leaders who speaks for "free market" and Adam Smith, but without morals. And the whole system doesn't work, of course.
