Abstract

Los horrores de la guerra total en el siglo xx han superado a menudo los de las guerras civiles. En estas últimas, a pesar de sus excesos, la conciencia de todos los contendientes de que la población del contrario es también su población ha ejercido casi siempre algún freno sobre la violencia dirigida hacia civiles inermes. Por el contrario, en la guerra entre Estados la violencia masiva a la que la población enemiga es sometida —sobre todo mediante los bombardeos—, se ha vuelto en el transcurso del siglo xx una pieza básica de toda estrategia bélica, a pesar de que su eficacia para conseguir la victoria haya generado siempre dudas. The horrors of total war have often gone beyond those of civil wars in the 20th Century. In the latter, in spite of their atrocities, every adversary has the conscience that the opponent's population is also part of the country's population, which has almost always curbed the violence against unarmed civilians in some way. On the contrary, when a war is between States, massive violence to which enemy's population is subjected —specially through bombardments— has become a basic element in every war strategy along the 20th Century, although its efficiency to achieve victory has always raised many doubts.
