From Gilgamesh to Terminator: The Warrior as a Manly Ideal, Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

Sanimir Rešić

Summary

The warrior mentality is deeply rooted in the construction of ideal manhood. The indoctrinating vocation to pass the ultimate male rite de passage by going through the baptism of fire is very common historically, geographically and culturally, and in all shapes and forms. It constitutes a strong reminder to young men that surely nothing in the world will make them pass the test of manhood like battle. Similarly, even to die bravely in combat has historically in many cultures promised the warrior-man eternal after-life. The aim of this article is to show how the warrior as ideal image of manliness, or male archetype, is conveyed from a long-term perspective and stand strong to this very day. With warfare, society, and technology in constant development and change, even women have increasingly adopted the ideal traditional warrior man. We see a continuation of warrior ideals from Gilgamesh to the cyborg Terminator of Hollywood.

Computer Wargames: Combat Models and Simulations at Different Levels of Resolution

Dražen Penzar, Armano Srbljinović, Ognjen Škunca

Summary

The paper parallely presents key characteristics different types of combat models and simulations. Models and simulations are grouped primarily according to resolution into three categories: networked simulators, high-resolution simulations and aggregated simulations.

Key hardware components and mathematical formalisms used on each level of resolution are mentioned. At the end of each chapter, usage of models and the possibilities to develop such models in Croatia are discussed.
