I think the concept has changed with the evolution of combat. It used to be that you'd face your foe in hand to hand combat on the field of battle, and fleeing from that combat or yielding was defeat.
Now, when battles are fought at hundreds or thousands feet, or even hundreds of miles away, where is the honor in facing a hunk of lead or a screaming missile.
Better to stay alive. The bullet won't judge you.
