I’m pretty much with the “if he’s facing the same way as you he’s on your side” method of distinguishing friend from foe in those battles.

Hollywood likes to make the two sides in any conflict look different so audiences know who to cheer for but real life (military and otherwise) tends to be a little muddier!

National identity is a very modern construct and feudal loyalties often crossed cultural and national boundaries.

 

Growing old is mandatory, growing up is entirely optional!
