Majors Cindy Sherman and Bud Lewis are the best young combat officers the army has, and they’ve both been tapped for plum positions as aides-de-camp for two of the Pentagon’s most senior generals. The Pentagon is a cauldron of careerist jockeying and factional squabbling in the best of times, though, and these are not the best of times. A president whom the officer class widely loathes sits in the White House, and grumblings that he’s steering the military onto the rocks are growing louder. Some officers are openly asking: If you believe the president is betraying his country, where does your duty lie? Just as Sherman and Lewis ease into their jobs — and into a deepening romance — a secret pressure group of military officers called the Sons of Liberty begins to carry out covert protests, symbolic at first, against White House policy. It is with shock that Lewis comes to suspect the group’s leader is his own boss and hero, General B.Z. Ames, and that the man in the center of Ames’s target is Sherman’s boss, General John Shillingworth. As the White House keeps the army grinding through a miserable third-world brushfire war, the Sons of Liberty’s activities grow more treasonous, and their efforts to avoid detection more ruthless, until Majors Sherman and Lewis find themselves in a vicious game with life-and-death stakes and the future of the American military hanging in the balance.

SFC Mark A. Alaimo shares a glimpse of his grueling experiences in the war on terrorism, how it shook his life and his eventual quest for healing. SFC Alaimos account is not a glamorized story of victory nor is it about the glory associated with war. Rather, it is the poignant and true recollection of a man who has been to the war, seen and experienced its horrors and, finally, returned with a changed view of the world, his country and life. The pages give voice to the fears, doubts and pain that thousands of soldiers go through in the battlefield and even after combat. The author shares fragments of his childhood, his disappointments and even his struggle with post traumatic stress. What results is a book that effectively captures a realistic and humanized perspective of war and how it affects the lives that became intertwined in it. Ultimately, DUTY. HONOR. FOR MY COUNTRY is a story of one mans love for his country and the sacrifices he had to make for his devotion. It radiates hope and inspiration most especially to the soldiers who share the same story crystallized in the book.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "An ode to excellence. An inspiring read for every American." --Robert M. Gates An extraordinary journey behind the scenes of Arlington National Cemetery, Senator Tom Cotton's Sacred Duty offers an intimate and inspiring portrait of "The Old Guard," the revered U.S. Army unit whose mission is to honor our country's fallen heroes on the most hallowed ground in America. Cotton was a platoon leader with the storied 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment--The Old Guard--between combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. At the height of the Iraq Surge, he carried the flag-draped remains of his fallen comrades off of airplanes at Dover Air Force Base, and he laid them to rest in Arlington's famed Section 60, "the saddest acre in America." He also performed hundreds of funerals for veterans of the Greatest Generation, as well as the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The Old Guard has embodied the ideals of honor and sacrifice across our nation's history. America's oldest active-duty regiment, dating back to 1784, The Old Guard conducts daily military-honor funerals on the 624 rolling acres of Arlington, where generations of American heroes rest. Its soldiers hold themselves to the standard of perfection in sweltering heat, frigid cold, and driving rain. Every funeral is a no-fail, zero-defect mission, whether honoring a legendary general or a humble private. In researching and writing the book, Cotton returned to Arlington and shadowed the regiment's soldiers, from daily funerals to the state funeral of President George H. W. Bush to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, reliving the honor--and the challenges--of duty at the nation's "most sacred shrine." Part history of The Old Guard, part memoir of Cotton's time at Arlington, part intimate profile of the today's soldiers, Sacred Duty is an unforgettable testament to the timeless power of service and sacrifice to our nation.

Traditionally few people challenged the distinction between absolute and selective conscientious objection by those being asked to carry out military duties. The former is an objection to fighting all wars - a position generally respected and accommodated by democratic states, while the latter is an objection to a specific war or conflict - theoretically and practically a much harder idea to accept and embrace for military institutions. However, a decade of conflict not clearly aligned to vital national interests combined with recent acts of selective conscientious objection by members of the military have led some to reappraise the situation and argue that selective conscientious objection ought to be legally recognised and permitted. Political, social and philosophical factors lie behind this new interest which together mean that the time is ripe for a fresh and thorough evaluation of the topic. This book brings together arguments for and against selective conscientious objection, as well as case studies examining how different countries deal with those who claim the status of selective conscientious objectors. As such, it sheds new light on a topic of increasing importance to those concerned with military ethics and public policy, within military institutions, government, and academia.

This book addresses the critical importance of courage in combat and when in a dangerous situation. A soldierOs combat performance pivots on his courage. Without it, all other combat qualities may be forfeited.Military leaders have recognized that it is the will of the soldier that is decisive. Combat is a mutual and sustained act of will between contending parties. A battle is usually decided when the soldier, or one side, loses its moral resolution to stand and fight. This book describes the factors that contribute to the soldierOs will and spirit to preserve in combat. A framework is presented relative to the Army training model of Leader, Individual and Collective Training to meet this goal, the demands of the modern battlefield and the expectations of your soldiers. A set of principles, with illustrative techniques, are described to provide an insight into ways developing and harnessing a soldierOs courage. The rationale for these considerations is also presented.
