It’s a really tough question — probably beyond my understanding, because I really can’t wrap my head around the topic of war and how much it can affect people. I’m not sure if you can get rid of morality completely, but maybe you have to have some predispositions to “loosen” it. There are countless stories from World War II, for example, which show that people even in the darkest of times were able to save lives, risking their own. I believe they didn’t end up as war criminals because they had pretty clear moral values to start with.
