I checked my assumptions with someone I trust, and I owe both an apology for challenging you and a compliment for the very professional way you responded. I think the source of my confusion is the interpretation of your phrase "except for the very basics". (I tried to reverse my downvote, but there seems to be a timeout in play).

comment Does a reputation for cruelty to PoWs give a tactical advantage?
You might look at Arab Israeli conflicts - there are reports that Arab soldiers refused to surrender to units that might include female fighters. (That isn't about cruelty, but it might help to study willingness to surrender.)

comment How can we be sure that a certain historical claim is true and accurate?
J. Jeffers of the British History Podcast suggests that first, we use the records we have, and second we examine analogous cultures/events for plausibility. Of course the foundational assumption is that you've read all the primary and the credible portion of the secondary research.
