Not spoilery, I just want to comment on how prescient Shaw was. The kind of cavalry charge led by Sergius against the heavy artillery, the height of absurdity, is exactly the kind of warfare engaged in by the red tabs in the forthcoming Great War. The only difference is that the brass realized early that horses were contraindicated, but they continued to throw men on foot up against automatic weapons and big guns again and again and yet again, until the armistice, with predictable results.
