On the army, it's not my domain either but it seems to me that (at least) since Napoleon the French army has hierarchized its officers according to the nobility of their birth or at least the name of their father! Maybe a little less recently but it has been true for a long time...
The First World War was the French nobility who sent the "troufions" of the common people to the death...which, for them, legitimized the massacres of those who did not have blue blood...subhumans in sum...
The pilots of the First World War were all aristos...(in Germany the same)...
(I probably didn't understand their message either...)
