it is awesome that people actually thought that far, also there is something worse for an army then half of it dead. That is half of it wounded beyond recovery. (they eat food, need help, need care, they slow the army down. Basically if you want a faction to loose, then you just take all those you capture and cut of their thumbs. Also if you have started with the thumbs the rest of the fingers should also be good. After that send them back to their army or a village or something.) The world is so interesting when people think of tactics like that

Yes - you could completely disarm a nation that way - and earn a multi-generational enemy. You have to realize that doing something like that to an entire army merited the hate of generations following. Not something that would end a cultural or long-lasting conflict.

nope, not always. normally the nation that got soldiers with their thumbs cut will loose. Its not always good but it is efficient at some points. Like if you want to prevent an uprising, or if you are just plainly evil.
The down sides are of course bitterness less labor if you conquer the enemy. Actually the down sides are too many to bother doing it with a whole army...

Yeah - they will lose, but who knows what might happen in fifteen years? Think of real examples of cultural bitterness, like [I am not trying to start a debate on this topic] the Israeli/Palistinian conflict.

That's only assuming that that army was the only one a Nation had, which would be silly.

I am not assuming that, i am assuming that if an army first got their thumbs cut of then most likely 3-10 other armies died in the same battle... Can you really think of an entire army giving up without fighting?

Again, your assuming that all of these armies were in the same spot to be in that battle. Generals don't consolidate all their forces in the same spot. They spread them out to defend as much as they strategically can while not spreading to thin. It's very rare for wars to be won in a single battle.

EDIT-Seems we are getting a bit off-topic. Perhaps a new thread although I don't really know what it would be about.

Except, in some instances in history, where one side foolishly lets their enemy have a shot at a decisive blow.

EG - Henry V defeated the French with two battles - the Siege of Harfluer, and the Battle of Agincourt. Only one real "Battle" but the French were devastated.

Absolutely. The flanking manuever was so basic, but the french just didn't expect it and paid for it drastically.

Which reminds me. I cannot wait for massive calvary charges in DoF.
