ABSTRACT

Maintaining the High Ground: The Profession and Ethic in Large-Scale Combat Operations   [open pdf - 7MB]

From the Webpage: "Volume 10, 'Maintaining the High Ground: The Profession and Ethic in Large-Scale Combat Operations' combines discussions and historical case studies from the past seventy-five years to address ethical challenges for the Army Profession. Healthy and functioning professions facilitate the employment of expert knowledge to serve a social good. In doing so, trust develops among professionals, as well as with the client, creating an acknowledged autonomy over its jurisdiction that allows the profession to maintain its effectiveness. For the Army, that jurisdiction is the application of land power and its client is the US government and the American public it serves. With today's all-volunteer Army, maintaining public trust is critical, and large-scale combat operations require a professional class of leaders and soldiers with strong ethics and the ability to adapt and even shape their own future."
