In every war, there are POWs resulted from capturing by force (injured so badly that couldn't even move), but more often the POWs surrendered on their own due to other situations. Every military would hate their soldiers to surrender in a battle, but reasonable commanders would make (rules) for when it is acceptable to surrender. From what I heard, a few "acceptable" situations for surrender are 1. Out of ammunition 2. being surrounded and cut off 3. Lost communication 4. Injured and unable to fight on What other situations are ok to surrender? Both acceptable to you and what you have learned from the military?
