Military Virtues (Issues in Military Ethics Book 1) (English Edition) Format Kindle
Up until now, there has been no extant book focusing on military virtues aimed at professionals. Like personnel in other professional organizations, service personnel at every stage of their careers need a complement of virtues (excellent traits) in order to navigate the stress, decisions, and temptations they face.
At a minimum, military professionals need to have a clear and working knowledge of the ethical decision-making process that underpin their profession in order to evaluate situations quickly. In the search for such clarity, this volume identifies 14 key virtues of the military professional and through introductory essays and real world examples of those virtues in practice, it provides guidance for service personnel at every stage of their career.
