Giving armed servicemen and women the task of 'civilizing' those parts of the world that have deteriorated into anarchy and bloodshed, ethnic cleansing, or genocide is to give them a moral rule far beyond what the laws of war can currently define. The problems of military ethics - a moral philosophy for the armed forces - are addressed in this book by the Rt. Hon Paddy Ashdown MP, Dr Michael Ignatieff, Professor Adam Roberts (Oxford University), Brigadier Loup Francart (Retired, French Army), Major General Paul McCarthy (Retired, US Air Force), General Sir Rupert Smith (DSACEUR) and Patrick Mileham (Retired, British Army).
