What is the greatest tragedy of war? Perhaps it isn't the death and destruction, but that we need it to know ourselves.Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Lindybeige Perhaps you'd like to see some archaeology videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... If someone close to you dies, it can be devastating. Reading about the deaths of thousands of strangers, centuries in the past does not have this effect. I have been lucky. I have never had to flee my homeland, rebuild my house, or bury a friend because of war. War for me is something I study at a distance. It is something interesting rather than terrible. Here I am talking about what is the greatest tragedy of war _for me_.
