Abstract

Surrender. The very notion conjures up images in the mind of furious battle, bloodshed, white flags, and drastic realterations of previous conditions for both the victor and the vanquished.

At times, the battle is short and concise, with the inferior side soon coming to a decision that its own interests are best served by acceding to the will of superior forces. At others, agonizing time is spent in the trenches, progress is begrudgingly slow, and the ebb and flow of battle leaves both sides wondering whether the misery of conflict is not their eternal lot.
