I think the overwhelming theme here is how much in common the enemies have on the battlefield. Their "strange meeting" transcends the boundaries stipulated by generals and politicians. The enemy soldiers have more in common with each other than they do with family at home.They are brothers in arms in a chaotic bur strangely intimate situation. The paradox is glaring. They are forced to kill each other yet they are so much alike.
