This lecture is dedicated to the factor of alcohol within the socialisation instance of the military and in the context of military conflicts.
Seemingly, war and alcohol are always thought of together from antiquity to the 21st century. Was this connection about a targeted effort for more courage and disinhibition or rather about the socially accepted consumption of beer, wine and schnapps? Did the triplet formula of "wine, women and song" apply above all to the military as a romanticised community of eternal lansquenets? Over the centuries, the lecture is dedicated to the factor of alcohol within the socialisation instance of the military and within the framework of military socialisation. of the military and in the context of military conflicts. A lecture by Lieutenant Colonel Dr Heiner Bröckermann, military historian at the Centre for Military History and Social Sciences of the German Armed Forces, Potsdam, as part of the special exhibition "Intoxicating. 10,000 years of beer and wine" of the Württemberg State Museum in Stuttgart. The lecture is being held in cooperation with the Schwäbischer Heimatbund.
