Two more questions - 

1. Why wasn't Karna made senapati on Day 11 itself when he entered the battlefield?

2. Why didn't Kripa succeed Drona as senapati?

Dury wanted to make Karna the senapati on Day 11, it was Karna who suggested that since Drona was respected by all and  the majority of the kings had at some time or other learnt martial science under him, Drona should be made the chief to avoid jealousy.

2. Not sure but believe that Karna was generally accepted to be a better warrior than Kripa or Ashwi

I wanna the scene again when Dury pushed him away in IP Sabha...ROFLROFL


So, were children allowed to take part in the war????Smile
I don't think that children participated. Participation must have depended upon the military education. Teens like Utthe participated.

Okay,one thing:
If Krishna himself said that Adharma done to save Dharma is not Adharma and Kuru War is fully Dharma,then why was he cursed by gandhari,even after not compelling any crime by himself??

So,if attacking on children was not adharma,then how come it became adharma on attacking women?? [As per the show!]

Did anyone try to talk "truce" in the midst of the war, being put off by the massacre taking place? 

Or was the Udyoga Parva the only case of "peace negotiations"?

Bheeshma did after his fall. Ashwi talked about peace after Dushy was killed and Kripa talked about peace after Karna was killed.

Gandhari's curse reflected a mother's agony that is beyond dharma or adharma. So her curse doesn't state that the war was adharma. Smile

Gandhari's curse was a mother's grief and pain being expressed. 

Also, the curse was necessary otherwise the Yadavas themselves would've become unnecessary burdens...think of it as Krishna's leela more than anything else.
