'Achieving the right balance in our own warrior ethos, and anticipating the challenges to it, are vital to the present and future operational effectiveness of our armed forces, as well as being important aspects of the wider ongoing debate on military culture and ethics. This book does not provide all the answers, nor does it seek to. But it does provide a comprehensive examination of this most important subject, and in a style which is both reflective and thought-provoking. It is an essential foundation to informed participation in the debate, and deserves to be widely read.' - Lieutenant General Sir John Kiszely, Director of the Defence Academy, RUSI Journal
