Wouldn't the defeat of the largest army Hell has ever assembled outside the walls of Dis also break their will to fight ?The Duchess of Zeon wrote:Starglider wrote:Is that necessary to achieve victory? As previously noted, Dis isn't vital to sustaining the demon armies in the field. Demonstrating the capability to destroy it is one thing, that's a motivation to surrender, but actually destroying it just motivates the remaining demons to fight to the death.The Duchess of Zeon wrote:I really, really, want Dis to burn like Hamburg, Dresden, and Tokyo, for the record. Let's show them what we can do without nukes.
Dis is huge. One firebombing raid won't destroy the largest city ever known to exist. Just a small segment of it, kill a hundred thousand or so. The Demons will however have to realize that we can keep up such raids, they can't stop them, end result, if they continue to fight, Dis WILL be destroyed. I think that knowledge would actually help break their will to resist.
Especially if the humans make a visible effort to spare non-combatants.
Though the firebombing raids might make that defeat easier, if the demon army learns of it.
