Prestige, fame and moral worth from the use of violence is pretty close to the definition of glory. Even our modern societies love violence, nay worship violence, although we like to pretend we don't. Hence so many royals go into the armed forces, even when they're totally unsuited like Prince Charles. We also see it with the liberals and the left. Its always we're fighting for this and fighting for that, constant labeling things as violent struggles even when they're patently not. "Fighting" could mean something as undramatic as going out and getting some signatures, hell fighting today could just mean going on to Facebook and posting some likes.
Now a lot of people will find pre modern warfare more to their taste. A lot of people feel that pre modern warfare was more noble. Which I guess in a literal sense was true. The common soldier was pretty much nameless and unremembered in pre modern times. It was less concerned with logistics (it still mattered but less so) because food was often just stolen from the local population. Again it was more noble, because this didn't concern the nobles, if the ordinary people were left to starve and their daughters were raped by the soldiers. Another key difference was the almost complete absence of women. Despite the pathetic fantasies of Hollywood. Modern weapons, the equalisers for example allowed women snipers to make very important contribution in the Soviet World War II army.

Cultural Marxism judgement of imagined guilty groups, "Whites", etc by completely unrealistic, absolute unchanging standards, while denying, minimising, excusing and relativising the "crimes" of imagined innocent oppressed groups.
