PlayStation®4 Ι Genre: Battle for Peace
Is really there a relationship between war and human nature? According to On War, the book written by the Prussian general Carl von Clausewitz, a war starts only when it must serve the purpose of a country, so the answer is no. But despite his authoritativeness, von Clausewitz’s opinion is a single drop in the vast ocean of philosophy of war. The very first record of a conflict date back to around 2700 BC, when the Sumerian king Enembaragesi fought and won over the Elamite state. Starting from it; during the millennia many opuses focused on war have been written, describing it in many different ways. For example, nowadays we have at our disposal great strategy treatises like Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, faithfully epic historical novels such as Lev Tolstoy’s War and Peace, and obviously a large number of anti-militarist tales including Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms or Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle.
Each author gave his personal opinion about what the war is, speculating on its causes, objectives, and consequences. There are as many schools of thoughts as many people live on Earth, but one thing is certain; even if not present in our nature; war is one of the most favorite activities of humankind; indeed the Greek philosopher Heraclitus declared that “war is the father of all things”.
Portrayed in hundreds of thousand movies, TV series, anime, and video games; the war has been dissected in any form to shock, excite, and let think people. Surely, one of the best series who tell this phenomenon in a very stylish way is the bestseller masterpiece The Legend of Heroes!
