Product description


"A clear, concise, and cogent study of the professional military ethic in a time of great international turmoil. Hartle writes perceptively about the kinds of contemporary crises in which officers must provide both military and moral leadership. A valuable and illuminating study that deserves a wide audience. Warmly recommended!"--James H. Toner, author of True Faith and Allegiance: The Burden of Military Ethics

"In an age much concerned with entitlements, it is refreshing to have Hartle's powerful meditation on obligations and responsibilities, selflessness and service to others, and the core values of the American military profession."--Lewis Sorley, author of Honorable Warrior: General Harold K. Johnson and the Ethics of Command

"A splendid discussion of the basic justification for the role of the military in American society."--David Johnson, professor of philosophy at the U.S. Naval Academy and civilian member of the Executive Board of the Joint Services Conference on Professional Ethics

"Must reading for the military professional. . . . Hartle provides fascinating case studies, structured around combat scenarios, that force the reader to confront dilemmas faced by military professionals. He reminds us that American national policy and performance are rife with inconsistencies that make it very difficult for military personnel to act in a moral way. He discusses Watergate, the international arms buildup, and Iranscam, and delineates the confusion such events engender in members of the military."--The Friday Review of Defense Literature
