What is the plural form of enemy?

noun. en·​e·​my | / ˈe-nə-mē / plural enemies.

Is enemy a collective noun?

Obviously in this case enemy is a collective noun. This usage is much more common in British English than in American English, and doubly so when reading literature of less recent authorship. English is not a clearly defined language. Theres a lot of ambiguity, especially in the more advanced rules.
