Titre original : The Devil's Arithmetic
It's incredible how much of World War I was fought with a 'let's see who has the last man standing' mentality. It makes for infuriating viewing as so-called military strategists come up with one poorly planned counter-attack after another with almost total disregard for the lives of the men involved. It's as if they are playing with toy soldiers. "Let's just keep throwing men and machines at each other until one side has nothing left."
