Unfortunately, all of the war stories of that period are warped. No testimony by any person of the period can be relied upon simply because so many of
them returned mentally ill, and so many others had to maintain a romantic image of heroic bravery.
The truth about any war is far more disturbing than any serving person would likely admit. And no paper, government, military leader or other around
the time would have ever even considered actually telling the truth about deserters, soldiers losing their minds and the barbaric acts taking place in
those battle fields.
Where such cases are documented, it's a safe bet that the truth is still being watered down to be easier to stomach.
