Modern warfare isn't about war in the standard sense but more about money. There is a lot of money in war. The point about creating hardened soldiers, it isn't the point. They're not looking to make hardened soldiers they want numb soldiers. Men and Women who will just do as they're told asking no questions and ready to give up their lives for pointless wars.
“I can’t write much these days,” wrote Grider. “I’m too nervous. I can hardly hold a pen. I’m all right in the air, as calm as a cucumber, but on the ground, I’m a wreck and I get panicky. Nobody in the squadron can get a glass to his mouth with one hand after one of these patrols. Some nights we have nightmares. We don’t sleep much.”
“It’s only a question of time until we all get it. I’m all shot to pieces. I only hope I can stick it out. I don’t want to quit. My nerves are all gone, and I can’t stop. I’ve lived beyond my time already. It’s not the fear of death that’s done it. It’s this eternal flinching from it that’s doing it, and has made a coward out of me. Few men live to know what real fear is. It’s something that grows on you, day by day, that eats into your constitution and undermines your sanity. I have never been serious about anything in my life, and now I know that I’ll never be otherwise again. Here I am, twenty four years old. I look forty and feel ninety. I’ve lost all interest in life beyond the next patrol.”

I have to agree with utter twaddle.
German armor was superior. Russian tank were better too.
It was only by sheer numbers by mass production ,and a lot of help from European Allies was that war won.
"So do you think if we keep sending soldiers to war, we will have combat hardened soldiers? That is the question. "
