If a country is invaded, the people will behave in accordance with
their generational era. In an Awakening era, the people will respond
to the invasion more passively thanin a Crisis era, where they'll
respond with maximum violence.
No matter what the generational era is, an unexpected invasion
that's extremely severe will cause the country to have a
"First Turning reset."
A First Turning reset occurs when a country is in a non-crisis era
(such as an Awakening era), and there's an unexpected invasion or
relocation that's so brutal that it destroys the normal generational
relationships. The country fights the invasion according to the
behaviors of its generational era (e.g., an Awakening era), but when
the war ends, it reverts to a First Turning Recovery era.
Note that a Second Turning Awakening era can only occur after a First
Turning. A Third Turning Unraveling era can only occur after a Second
Turning. A Fourth Turning Crisis era can only occur after a Third
Turning. If there's no crisis war during the Fourth Turning, then
there's a distinctly different Fifth Turning.
Turnings cannot occur in any other order, and a turning cannot last
longer than a single generation, around 20 years. However, a First
Turning reset can occur from any turning if there's an unexpected
