It must have been a strange day in prehistory for humans when other humans mounted their first hunting trip. How long do you think it was until those early people came up with a word for war? Though war has changed over the centuries, much of how it is done at the very macro level remains unchanged. Strategy is more or less the same.
Sun Tzu, Julius Caesar, Miyamoto Musashi, Niccolo Machiavelli, Yagyu Munenori and Norman Schwarzkopf all used essentially the same ideas, just with different weapons. Similarly, military culture has remained very similar to its ancient roots. Soldiers' virtues are more or less the same: obedience, discipline, skill and toughness, but the language has changed. These days, calling someone Kilroy doesn't mean the same thing it did in World War II, and cultural references today would make no sense to people from a thousand years ago. As a result, names changed and nicknames change. According to legend, Musashi was not Musashi's name at birth. Perhaps the same was true for Sun Tzu. So how does one earn a military nickname?
