This paper provides the conceptual foundation for stochastic-duels and then develops a modest extension to more realistic combat situations. Simple Stochastic models for the fundamental duel and the classical duel are reviewed. A modest extension is developed for the theory of multiple duels: when all firing times are continuous random variables, an expression for the probability of winning such a duel is derived by using the theory of continuous-time Markov chains.
