    According to your made up chart without a source or even proper axes, about 28 days or a month.
    Afterwards, he basically becomes a suicidal altruistic cuck if he still has humanity or a carefree homicidal cannibal if he has no humanity left.
    War is hell.

    >soldier becomes saiyan after 60 days in combat
    one would think that the infantryman would be of greatest combat efficiency at that point

    During ww2 it was observed that in the italian campaign, US soldiers could operate around 250-300 before being SPENT (Combat ineffective)

      and what happens after

      is the performance constant or does it degrade over time

      how did they take these measurements

        It is fluctual, influenced by state of supplies etc. But after 300 days the soldier NEEDED rest because he wasn't capable to operate.

        Degrading performance over time.

            Continuous stress and alertness (even if there are periods of "rest" in between) is not good for anyone. Compare it to running an engine at 100% power for weeks on end. Stuff breaks down.

        1 soldier is unmeasurable and unpredictable, 100k soldiers are a statistical certainty. All you need is logs of unit composition (ratio of fresh/old) and effectiveness over time. Given large enough numbers, random noise gets filtered out.

        Look at Kampfgroup Piper, they were killing friendly civilians along with surrendered GIs, they could not be "debrutalized" after leaving the Eastern front.

        When guys like that go home, they would beat the cows black and blue or choke out somebody after a fender bender.

      Then you have the japanese, whose soldiers would operate for years with very little supplies and with regular abuse as the only morale booster.

        Yeah. Like those several morons who operated inna-jungle for 10-30 years post war uncontacted.

        In combat environments, sorry the book didn't specify what is a combat environment.

    You can apply this to most jobs over a longer time frame.
