The good news is that the vast majority of soldiers are loath to kill in battle. Unfortunately, modern armies, using Pavlovian and operant conditioning have developed sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. The psychological cost for soldiers, as witnessed by the increase in post-traumatic stress, is devastating.

Many great stories, quotes, and theories explained in this book. Grossman does a good job of ensuring his points get across by referencing past quotes, and reiterating Ideas. The quality of his conjecture is great, and I agree with most of it. However, near the end of the book he tries to tie all his ideas together to call for legislative censorship of violence in the media. This is only the last chapter, but I found myself rolling my eyes pretty hard through this last stretch. Such a great intellectual book which ends on such a weak note.
