Chapter: The Army on the March 9.29
< /br>

When the soldiers stand leaning on their spears, they are faint from want of food.

A strong soldier stands upright. They are balanced and alert. When they sag, it is likely because they are tired. When they require support, they are even more tired. One good reason for this is a lack of food. Lack of sleep and too much stress and fighting without recuperation also has this effect.
