Human reactions are usually surprising, and in time of war even more.
Illogical attitudes are the order of the day. We can find an antecedent of what we are going to deal with in the attitude of many soldiers of both the Union and the Confederation during the American Civil War, who refused to follow the orders of their sergeants and officers, to lay down their bodies to protect themselves. , arguing that a soldier fights on foot.
It took some time to recognize that body to land was less white and could continue firing.
During our war something similar happened, the use of the helmet took in becoming popular because to protect so much was little masculine.
We will never see legionaries covered with a helmet, nor regular ones, and the militia of both commanders took their time to recognize their advantages.
