Most textbooks correctly answer this question: the means of killing advanced faster then the military tactics.

If we took 10% casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, heads would roll and governments fall. Civil War armies frequently absorbed 30% casualties and they did this over and over.

Always keep in mind that 2/3 of the casualties were from disease and many more from poorly treated wounds...
