Learning Torah on the Battlefield? From the Netziv

Learning Torah on the Battlefield?  From the Netziv

Recently, Rabbi Jay Kelman alerted me to the following passage in Netziv (I found the exact reference in החיל והחסן, a book on the Netziv’s perspective on war). The Netziv claims that the tribe of Yissochor, who represented the Talmidei Chachamim, would learn and daven ON THE BATTLEFIELD, for the success of the war effort. Don’t really know what to do with it. `This piece was brought up in context of this interesting suggestion by R. Nathan Lopes Cordozo: http://cardozoacademy.org/current-thought-to-ponder-by-rabbi-lopes-cardozo/spinozas-sub-specie-aeternitatis-yeshiva-students-and-the-army-ttp-385/.
