Foster - Group psychology is applicable to any armed conflict. We expect soldiers to kill and be killed, but what about civilians and other non-combatants?

Psychological insight from the Milgram and the Stanford Prison experiment will demonstrate how easy it is to get humans to do things they wouldn't otherwise do.
