An ordinary soldier can't fake his death "to avoid losing a battle" - an ordinary soldier doesn't "lose a battle". I am confident that someone can find evidence of someone faking their death in order to desert - somewhat difficult to document because people tend not to record evidence of crimes that bear the death penalty, but I'm sure someone can find one.

This question is imprecise, judgmental and far too broad. If you're seriously interested, you might read Fukayama's Political Order and Decay, but the question reads like a solicitation for political discussion rather than a serious question about history.

Requests for reference are out of scope, unless they are requests for canonical resources. Are there canonical references on Linguistic or musical evolution?
