Abstract

In yesteryears, battlefields were specific, strategically chosen locations and it was on these battlefields that heroes and cowards were born. With the exception of ambushes, wars of the past have a sense of locality about them. On the contrary, today’s armed forces no longer have that luxury. The battle can easily start in tropical jungles, move towards an urban attack on a city and might end with an ICBM attack from space. While definitely a frightening scenario, the truth is that battle lines no longer exist and conflicts may erupt at any place and time.
