WHAT BATTLES HAVE IN COMMON

“What battles have in common is the human: the behavior of men struggling to reconcile their instinct of self-preservation, their sense of honor and the achievement of some aim over which other men are ready to kill them. The study of battle is therefore always a study of fear and usually of courage, usually also of faith and sometimes vision. —Sir Herbert Butterfield Man On His Past” Dave Grossman, On Combat: The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace
