By Armin Eich
So verfolgt Armin Eich in seinem spannenden Buch die Geschichte des Krieges von den frühesten Anfängen bis zur Spätantike. Er erhellt, wie die zunehmende ökonomische Integration Europas und Vorderasiens im 2. Jahrtausend v. Chr. einen ersten Höhepunkt erreicht und nicht zuletzt auf dem Gebiet der Waffentechnologie und der Entwicklung militärischer Fähigkeiten Ausdruck findet. Dieser bronzezeitliche Rüstungswettlauf endet um 1200 v. Chr. in einem sozialen und ökonomischen Zusammenbruch, ohne freilich ein Umdenken auszulösen: Mit der wirtschaftlichen und demographischen Erholung nimmt schon bald wieder die Gewaltintensität zu und geht mit der Entwicklung verbesserter Waffen und effizienterer Kampftaktiken einher. Im 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr. kann guy mit dem Aufkommen einer ersten Ingenieursliteratur gar von einer Verwissenschaftlichung des Krieges sprechen. Der einzige Ausweg aus der fortschreitenden Eskalation scheint die Errichtung eines auf militärischer Macht basierenden Friedensreiches zu sein – das vorübergehend im Imperium Romanum Gestalt gewann.

As he paged in the course of the stories of a number of murders, a number of rapes, and villages erased from the map, a half-forgotten reminiscence from his formative years started to emerge: the rape and homicide of a tender woman from his domestic city, the shadow that torture of the suspect had completed the solution of the case, the childish feeling of delight that justice were done. Then, slowly, voices from Carlson’s past—parents, squaddies, torturers, priests—began to fill the empty room, accusing him of hypocrisy as a human rights recommend, filling him with worry that he too in given conditions may well suggest torture.
