During the Spring and Autumn period was compulsory conscription the norm? During the Spring and Autumn period was compulsory conscription the norm in most states? Or was voluntary conscription more common than one might believe?

I think, in China, as long as if it was a time of the pass or feudalism, the common people(males in the families) had to go to war when the emperors or the kings issued the commands. In ancient China, emperors or kings were the law. so during the Spring and Autumn period compulsory conscription was the norm in most states.

China carries out compulsory military service,but the voluntary conscription can almost completely meet the demand of army.However,each area has it's own quota.in relatively rich areas few people want to join the army so there might be a compulsory conscription.but generally ,there are already too many people craving for it...

In China it is compulsory, but as you know, China has a really large population, and a boy of a right age needn't worry about too much if he dosen't want to serve in the army, because there are still a lot people want to serve in the army voluntarily, even if a boy want to join the army of his own accord, he may meet a fierce competition.
