The Battle of Delium 424 BC( Athenians vs Boeotians)
Imagine a soldier at the front of the Boeotian line having the following realisation.. "if our defense is successful I still risk the chance of dying. If our defense is unsuccessful I will most certainly die. From this reasoning, what is the best alternative for the soldier? Now imagine if all the soldiers were to exhibit this same type of reasoning both at the same time?
