It's interesting that in this example, the older and middle aged men took the front line and the younger men stood behind them.

Clearly experience was important when our forefathers fought battles and were therefore able to exert some control over the more excitable younger men. What a pity that apparently this practice has now changed with with the older men now sending the younger men in first to be slaughtered.

A classic modern example of this stupidity was the First World War where the mostly incompetent generals were still alive at the end of the war and died in bed while millions of young men lost their lives in battle thanks to their leader's inability to understand what was actually required to win battles.

Thank you for this salient lesson.
