While I respectfully disagree with endurance prowess being unmanly (I think Lance Armstrong for example is pretty fucking manly in his own way), I agree with the rest of your post. From what I understand, and basically what you said, pretty much most real life engagements depend upon being explosive, and that activity puts one in one's anaerobic zone. I would think a proper balance between the two would be optimal though for your typical soldier.
