The Warrior Ethos Book Excerpt:

WARS CHANGE, WARRIORS DON'T We are all warriors. Each of us struggles every day to define and defend our sense of purpose and integrity, to justify our existence on the planet and to understand, if only within our own hearts, who we are and what we believe in. Do we fight by a code? If so, what is it? What is the Warrior Ethos? Where did it come from? What form does it take today? How do we (and how can we) use it and be true to it in our internal and external lives? The Warrior Ethos is intended not only for men and women in uniform, but artists, entrepreneurs and other warriors in other walks of life. The book examines the evolution of the warrior code of honor and "mental toughness." It goes back to the ancient Spartans and Athenians, to Caesar's Romans, Alexander's Macedonians and the Persians of Cyrus the Great (not excluding the Garden of Eden and the primitive hunting band). Sources include Herodotus, Thucydides, Plutarch, Xenophon, Vegetius, Arrian and Curtius--and on down to Gen. George Patton, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, and Israeli Minister of Defense, Moshe Dayan.

The Warrior Ethos Book Excerpt:

This is the first scholarly book to look at the role of the 'warrior' in modern war, arguing that warriors' actions, and indeed thoughts, are increasingly patrolled and that the modern battlefield is an unforgiving environment in which to discharge their vocation. As war becomes ever more instrumentalized, so its existential dimension is fast being hollowed out. Technology is threatening the agency of the warrior and this volume paints a picture of early twenty-first century warfare, helping to explain why so many aspiring warriors are becoming disenchanted with their profession. Written by a leading thinker on warfare, this book sets out to explain what makes an American Marine a ‘warrior’ and why suicide bombers, or Al Qaeda fighters, do not qualify for this title. This distinction is one of the central features of the current War on Terror – and one that justifies much more extensive discussion than it has so far received. The Warrior Ethos will be of great interest to all students of military history, strategy, military sociology and war studies.

SUMMARY The Warrior Ethos By Steven Pressfield Book Excerpt:

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. As you read this summary, you will learn what the "warrior ethos" is, that is, what the essential characteristics of a warrior are, and how to use them to your advantage in your life. You will also learn : how the Spartans or Alexander the Great lived; why a warrior is fundamentally different from a civilian; that the code of honor is not an empty word among warriors; that adversity is not always negative; how the ethos can be useful to a non-military person. Since antiquity, warriors have instinctively followed a kind of code of honor that has always been their strength and reputation. However, over the last few centuries, changes in the way war is fought have profoundly challenged the old ways of life of combatants. Yet, beyond appearances, even if it has lost its importance, this code is still being passed on, because its preservation is essential. It is not only a way of fighting: it is also a way of being that, beyond the military, speaks to every human being. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!

Summary of Steven Pressfield s The Warrior Ethos Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The Warrior Ethos is a set of virtues that most warrior societies believe must be instilled from birth. In Sparta, every newborn boy was brought before the magistrates to be examined for physical hardiness. If a child was judged unfit, he was taken to a wild gorge on Mount Taygetos and left for the wolves. #2 The Warrior Ethos is not just a manifestation of male aggression, but of society-wide strength and will. It is based on the will and resolve of mothers and wives to defend their children, their home soil, and the values of their culture. #3 The Warrior Ethos is the result of the human race’s need to survive. It evolved from the primary need of the spear-toting, rock-throwing, animal-skin-wearing hunting band. The Warrior Ethos encourages us to contend against and defeat our enemies within ourselves. #4 The Warrior Ethos was developed as a counterpoise to fear. It was based on the idea that a manly virtue of valor and honor was as important as victory.

The Warrior Military Ethics and Contemporary Warfare Book Excerpt:

When it comes to thinking about war and warriors, first there was Achilles, and then the rest followed. The choice of the term warrior is an important one for this discussion. While there has been extensive discussion on what counts as military professionalism, that is what makes a soldier, sailor or other military personnel a professional, the warrior archetype (varied for the various roles and service branches) still holds sway in the military self-conception, rooted as it is in the more existential notions of war, honor and meaning. In this volume, Kaurin uses Achilles as a touch stone for discussing the warrior, military ethics and the aspects of contemporary warfare that go by the name of 'asymmetrical war.' The title of the book cuts two ways-Achilles as a warrior archetype to help us think through the moral implications and challenges posed by asymmetrical warfare, but also as an archetype of our adversaries to help us think about asymmetric opponents.

Warrior Ethos Book Excerpt:

This research refines and operationalizes the 2003 definition of Warrior Ethos and examines a means for its inculcation into the Army. Specifically, the research considered Initial Entry Training (IET) of enlisted Soldiers as an initial opportunity for the application of potential solutions, although the concepts apply to officer initial military training as well. The U.S. Army Infantry School Task Force Soldier's 2003 definition of Warrior Ethos (Mission First, Never Quit, Never Accept Defeat, Never Leave a Fallen Comrade) was examined, and further broken down into the values- based attributes exemplified by a Soldier who demonstrates Warrior Ethos. Using a theoretical framework, these attributes were linked to specific behavior, the execution of which represented an operationalization of Warrior Ethos as a complex concept. The desirable behaviors, captured in nine Warrior battle drills, were also considered from the standpoint of barriers or friction to their execution. A tentative methodology for training was then postulated.

Steven Pressfield s the Warrior Ethos Book Excerpt:

While serving a tour in Afghanistan in 2013, I came across Steven Pressfield's 2011 monograph " The Warrior Ethos," at the top of a list of books that the Commandant of the Marine Corps had made mandatory reading for all Marines. Having enjoyed several of Pressfield's historical novels before, I was looking forward to this latest volume, but was shocked by what I discovered; a rambling mixture of Laconophiliac hero worship, Eastern mysticism, and pop psychology. As a leader and an officer, I was so concerned by the disturbingly misogynistic and backwards-looking nature of this book that I found myself obliged to write a critique to explain the book's glaring deficiencies, but soon realized that such a critique would only be half of what was needed; just as important would be a counterpoint to illustrate the nature of a Warrior Ethos more suited for the Information Age than the Bronze Age. Pressfield wrote his book in an attempt that was as well-intentioned as its outcome was mistaken; to define and promulgate a "Warrior Ethos" meant to help guide young (presumably American) fighting men and women along the path to success. Unfortunately, his principles, if followed to the letter, would more likely result in personal and professional failure. This book has been written to accomplish Pressfield's intended purpose; but I propose a much different moral compass than the honor-bound, shame-based relic of dead cultures that my counterpart has offered up, and this book represents my effort to suggest a useful way forward in considering what sort of ethos modern warriors of all ages, ranks, and nationalities may find beneficial in the years to come.

The Routledge International Handbook of Military Psychology and Mental Health Book Excerpt:

Military psychology has become one of the world’s fastest-growing disciplines with ever-emerging new applications of research and development. The Routledge International Handbook of Military Psychology and Mental Health is a compendium of chapters by internationally renowned scholars in the field, bringing forth the state of the art in the theory, practice and future prospects of military psychology. This uniquely interdisciplinary volume deliberates upon the current issues and applications of military psychology not only within the military organization and the discipline of psychology, but also in the larger context of its role of building a better world. Split into three parts dedicated to specific themes, the first part of the book, "Military Psychology: The Roots and the Journey," provides an overview of the evolution of the discipline over the years, delving into concepts as varied as culture and cognition in the military, a perspective on the role of military psychology in future warfare and ethical issues. The second part, "Soldiering: Deployment and Beyond," considers the complexities involved in soldiering in view of the changing nature of warfare, generating a focal discourse on various aspects of military leadership, soldier resilience and post-traumatic growth in the face of extreme situations, bravery and character strengths and transitioning to civilian life. In the final section, "Making a Choice: Mental Health Issues and Prospects in the Military," the contributors focus on the challenges and practices involved in maintaining the mental health of the soldier, covering issues ranging from stress, mental health and well-being, through to suicide risk and its prevention, intervention and management strategies, moral injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Incorporating enlightening contributions of eminent scholars from around the world, the volume is a comprehensive repository of current perspectives and future directions in the domain of military psychology. It will prove a valuable resource for mental health practitioners, military leaders, policy-makers and academics and students across a range of disciplines.

Is Remote Warfare Moral Book Excerpt:

America is at an important turning point. Remote warfare is not just a mainstay of post–9/11 wars, it is a harbinger of what lies ahead—a future of high-tech, artificial intelligence–enabled, and autonomous weapons systems that raise a host of new ethical questions. Most fundamentally, is remote warfare moral? And if so, why? Joseph O. Chapa, with unique credentials as Air Force officer, Predator pilot, and doctorate in moral philosophy, serves as our guide to understanding this future, able to engage in both the language of military operations and the language of moral philosophy. Through gripping accounts of remote pilots making life-and-death decisions and analysis of high-profile cases such as the killing of Iranian high government official General Qasem Soleimani, Chapa examines remote warfare within the context of the just war tradition, virtue, moral psychology, and moral responsibility. He develops the principles we should use to evaluate its morality, especially as pilots apply human judgment in morally complex combat situations. Moving on to the bigger picture, he examines how the morality of human decisions in remote war is situated within the broader moral context of US foreign policy and the future of warfare.

War and the Politics of Ethics Book Excerpt:

Contemporary Western war is represented as enacting the West's ability and responsibility to help make the world a better place for others, in particular to protect them from oppression and serious human rights abuses. That is, war has become permissible again, indeed even required, as ethical war. At the same time, however, Western war kills and destroys. This creates a paradox: Western war risks killing those it proposes to protect. This book examines how we have responded to this dilemma and challenges the vision of ethical war itself, exploring how the commitment to ethics shapes the practice of war and indeed how practices come, in turn, to shape what is considered ethical in war. The book closely examines particular practices of warfare, such as targeting, the use of cultural knowledge, and ethics training for soldiers. What emerges is that instead of constraining violence, the commitment to ethics enables and enhances it. The book argues that the production of ethical war relies on an impossible but obscured separation between ethics and politics, that is, the problematic politics of ethics, and reflects on the need to make decisions at the limit of ethics.
