Item Description

WARS CHANGE… WARRIORS MUST EVOLVE AS WELL. Steven Pressfield is wrong – not everyone is a warrior. But those of us who are can indeed benefit from developing a strong Warrior Ethos – just not the kind that equates honor with vengeance and stoicism, and seeks to instill it through shame and the use of gender-based insults, as Pressfield advocates.

Instead, today’s warriors need a modern Warrior Ethos that acknowledges diversity and is based on solid principles of firmness, fairness, and dignity towards our fellow warriors, and our adversaries.

Written by a Marine officer, this alternative Warrior Ethos is intended primarily for men and women in uniform, but its core principles can be applied by leaders from all walks of life, and anyone who wants to develop in themselves the qualities of Experience, Empathy, Example, Education, and Empowerment.

This book calls upon historical wisdom of Herodotus, Plutarch and Thucydides along with the modern observations of John Keegan, Michael Ignatieff, Lieutenant General Victor “Brute” Krulak, USMC and others to debunk the misogynistic and backwards-looking nature of Pressfield’s 2011 book, and to provide a much different moral compass than the honor-bound, shame-based relic of dead cultures that he has offered up as a template for our young women and men in uniform.
