How to Lose a War

Have such lousy morale that your enemy captures a significant armored force.  4/5/22 Wall Street Journal:
"Ukraine has captured 176 Russian tanks, 34 self-propelled artillery pieces, 116 armored fighting vehicles, 149 infantry fighting vehicles, 23 multiple-rocket launchers, and 45 armored personnel carriers, according to Oryx, an open-source intelligence blog that only counts visual evidence of equipment capture."

While this is part of an article about the Czechs supplying Ukraine with tanks, the bigger part is that both Czech and Slovakia "considering opening their military industrial installations to repair and refit damaged Ukrainian military equipment."
