There hadn't really been an army of enfranchised, free citizens like the French in WWI before.not to drift topic but has there ever been a similar 'strike' by non-French military?
There were also refugees from French republicanism triumphant.The French officers class was largely made of ex-nobles ferociously anti republic
they were reactionary to a man
they resented being under the civilian control and claimed that they and they alone were the guardians of France "glory"
they were bastards
