A timely work given public concern over the purported “gap” between the military and society, Morals Under the Gun
examines the centrality of the cardinal virtues to the military ethic. Discussing the relationship between soldier and civilian in America, Toner observes that the problems besetting the military are essentially those that trouble society at large.
