That shocked me! So I checked it out, and it's true.



Actually we pretty much have learned some very important lessons.
The problem of military history and tactics comes from the old Napoleonic order of battle that dominated Western warfare, up to the end of WW1.
It started to fall apart with the American Civil war, with the advent of better and more deadly arms, then completely collapsed at the end of WW1, with the rapid mobility of the airplane and the tank.
It is the 1st lesson taught in an applied military history course.
The 2nd lesson is the psychology of war...but that's a different lesson, only obliquely important.
You just had to eh?
