The US Army could have been a Roman, Mongol, French, British, Russian, Japanese etc.

 

There was no decimation, depopulation, mass executions etc.

 

The problem w/ concentrating wholly upon the CW is that it's not very easy to realize how many times things have happened before.  Knowing history too well you realize that the more things change the more they stay the same.

I often hear how brutal Sherman's march wa or that Sherman was the first to practice total war.  the only way to say such w/ a straight face is to ignore more than 2000 years of history prior to 1865.
