You're both right, but are talking about different periods of history. After the
Treaty of Westphalia in the 17th century, military battles, which until then had

about a century.
I was just reading last week about the French activities in Iberia during Wellington's campaigns. This early 19th century stuff was as savage as it gets. There was no such thing as a "non-combatant", and this was from armies with a supposed "Judeo-Christian" foundation.
