If turning most of your men into semi-professional fighters can overcome 20 to 1 odds, what does that say about the effect it would have on an otherwise even battle?

The more than 20 to 1 odds were between the populations, not between the armies.

I did not mean that semi-professional fighters are inherently greatly superior to professionals. But a small country which needs a large army can quickly exhaust the pool of volunteers and be forced to turn to conscription.
