Présentation de l'éditeur :

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. War loot refers to goods, valuables and property obtained after a war from occupied territories. The winning army traditionally reserves the right" to rob and plunder the defeated country and its population, often combined with war rape. Looting during war has been common practice since recorded times. For foot soldiers, it was viewed as a way to supplement their often meager income and vent aggression. On higher levels, leaders of the winning armies, countries and nations did the very same, just in grander style. The proud exhibition of loot was an integral part of the typical Roman triumph, for example. Jenghis Khan was not unusual in proclaiming that the greatest happiness was to vanquish, devastate and rob one''s enemies. Not only the enemy''s property, but his home, family and person belonged to the victor, who was free to take, enslave or destroy whatever or whomever he wanted."
