The connection between love and war is the fact that we take what we love to war and sometimes war can become what we love. We love our fellow soldiers, our mission, our connection to the land, and oddly enough we love the story that come from war

I am having trouble explaining to my class the overall theme message. A universal theme that they can all agree on between love and war. What is the correlation between love and war? What other abstract connotations associated with love and war. Thanks so much! I appreciate any input.
