All sides suffer tremendously with the introduction of the machine gun; one physically, the other emotionally as the value of life has become equal to a turn of a crank.

No, the "Maxim" machine gun was only a single barrel with a water jacket around it. This is a first generation gatling gun. It was hand cranked, and fired the 45-40 gov. Round.  They didn't ever deploy it much, because people would turn the crank too fast, and it would jam.  It was gravity fed, so each round had to 'fall' into the breach. If it's cranked too fast, the round will get pinched between the breech and the frame, deforming it. So you'd have to unload the gun, and clear the jam.

They don't retreat because they don't have a choice. It's either die quickly to you, or die slowly to their own kith and kin.

If they're stupid and primal enough to see honor in being pathetically mowed down in droves like that, they DESERVE to get minced.

The stupid die. It's why we get smart to survive. And oddly enough it's also why we've been able to have war all this time. Stupid people love war, they love going to it. And they breed like rabbits. The smart people exploit that for their own needs and spin webs of lies and BS to encourage the war.
