Tell that to the guys who lose'em. lol
Warsaw gets wiped off the face of Earth. I'm sure there wasn't one twisted guy in there who though that was beautiful.
Things are different if you are detached.
Romania joins the nazis in Word War 2, fights USSR, then is occupied by USSR, and after that we get 50 years of communism throwing us in the middle ages.
Or the jews. I'm not getting started on the jews.
Looking from a detached perspective, war can be a lot of things.
But for me in ain't beautiful.
