"The Faith of the American Soldier" opens with the core question that lies at the heart of the book; What happens religiously to America's soldiers when they go to battle and what impact does this have on the nation's conduct of war? Mansfield looks closely at the modern scene to examine the religious nature of the warrior ethic today: There is a new generation on the battlefield now, one raised with less religious training and less connection to history than any that has come before. They are pretty much left to their own religious choices to frame their moral perspectives on war, on killing, and on the possibility of death. 198 pages with Notes, Bibliography, Acknowledgments, and About the Author. 9.4 x 6 inches.
