Does combat experience foster hardliner approaches to conflict, diminishing the likelihood of reconciliation? We exploit the assignment of health rankings determining combat eligibility in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to examine the eft ect of combat exposure on support for peaceful resolution of conflict. Given the centrality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to global aft airs, and with no resolution to the conflict currently in sight, the question of the political consequences of combat becomes all the more pressing. We fi nd that exposure to combat hardens attitudes towards the rival and reduces support for negotiation and compromise.
