  1. Here are the biggest no-nos for both, civilians and the military. Civilians first:

    Listening to the enemy’s music. Don’t you ever effing do that! Okay, maybe you love that band from your childhood, we get it, but now it’s war and you do not only stop listening to their music, you also get rid of their CDs and albums.
    “Enemy” books. Same as with the music. People will think you’re a spy.
    Ignoring evacuation orders. Wanna get arrested or shot?
    Ignoring curfews and restricted military areas. Bad idea. In wartime, you do exactly what the military is telling you, whether it’s your own military or that of the occupation forces.

    Now the soldiers:

    Not knowing the password when you approach a sentry. Generals have died doing that.
    Forgetting the codenames and replacing them with the real (clear) names when you’re talking over the radio.
    Moving around without your rifle in a combat zone.
    Violating the rules regarding light discipline.
    Sleeping while on guard duty.
    Retreating from your position without telling anyone. This goes for individuals as well as whole units.
    Moving around when you’re under artillery fire.

    The biggest no-no thing (in my opinion):

    To hesitate when you’re in combat. There are no second chances.
