The German Army of the Kaiser consisted of 800,000 conscripts. There were hardly any professional soldiers. Amongst these 800,000 men they had ten thousand who were called One Year’s Volunteers. That means mostly students and men with higher certification of education.
The medical students had to serve only for half a year with the Infantry. And then, after they were qualified the next half year as doctors, as Medical Officers.
