I suspect the reason you guys didn't like Thin Red Line is because it actually described the real secret to winning wars: love. A love of your comrades sufficiently strong, that you not only transform from being an AWOL brig slug, but save your whole company via by an act of ultimate personal sacrifice.
I know we wargamers tend to be into the material issues like caliber size, explosive penetration, timetables, efficiency and zones of control. I admit I'm speculating here about something I have zero realworld experience in. But based on what I know, love I think is the strongest weapon in any militaries arsenal (apart from pure asymmetrical firepower, which would seem to suffice as a replacement for luv). Call it comraderie if you prefer (Esprit du Corps, perhaps), but I think there is no other word in the English language that is as apt at the L word.
Now you've got me confused: I thought Love is what makes a Subaru a Subaru. (No, not an evil Subaru -- a regular one.)
