The Impalpable Something of War

Despite the impossibility of physically detecting the soul, its existence is proven by its tangible reflection in acts and thoughts. So with war, beyond its physical aspect of armed hosts there hovers an impalpable something which dominates the material.
...[T]o understand this "something" we should seek it in a manner analogous to our search for the soul. -Gen. George Patton
