The Soldier: A History of Courage, Sacrifice and Brotherhood investigates the burdens that soldiers are asked to bear by their respective societies, examines the context in which these burdens occur, and discusses the coping measures that enable soldiers to carry on. Topics include: how soldiers confront the possibility of their mutilation and death; the mental and social conditioning that enable soldiers to kill in battle; the anguish of killing your own comrades, whether this be deliberately through the application of the death penalty, or accidentally, as result of fratricide; the effect of denying soldiers regular social interaction with women in the context of the relationship between sex, love and war; and the ‘trial by media’ faced by modern soldiers in relation to their decisions and actions on the battlefield.
