Nothing in print provides such a wealth of factual case studies relevant to military ethics.~Lt. Col. Paul Christopher
The issues are timely and have a clear pubic-policy relevance.~Naval War College Review
Toner's book serves as both microscope and mirror for those willing to take a penetrating look at the military services and what they mean to individual members and to society.~Proceedings
