    Excerpt from A Manual of Instructions for Enlisting and Discharging Soldiers: With Special Reference to the Medical Examination of Recruits, and the Detection of Disqualifying and Feigned Diseases

    The successes of Napoleon's military opera tions were due in no small degree to rapidity of combinations and celerity of movements, or, in other words, to the physical efficiency of his troops. Reverses began when the necessi ties of the emperor and the exhaustion of the matured portion of the population required that the conscription be enforced with more rigor and the army recruited from a levy of conscripts under twenty years of age, less care fully selected. The capacity to endure fatigue and long marches is not less a requirement now than it was to the Roman soldier, who marched, carrying a load of sixty pounds, twenty miles and more a daysf Railroad communications may and do powerfully assist in military movements; but their aid is local and of limited application, whilst physical stamina is universally applicable. The ten dency in these days is to decry the necessity for a high standard of physical efficiency in the constitution of an army, and to exaggerate the importance of improved arms.
