On Military Virtues | The Dead Prussian Podcast

By The Cove July 3, 2019

The Australian Army has recently adopted five core behaviours as part of its training transformation, one of which is Ethical Decision Making. To support this, we are posting a link to Episode 77 from the Dead Prussian Podcast which is on Military Virtues. 

In this episode Mick chats with Professor David Whethamprofessor Ethics and the Military profession at Kings College London. They discuss his co-edited book, Military Virtues, and why virtue ethics is important for military leaders.

The Dead Prussian Podcast aims to explore War and Warfare through discussion and analysis of military theory, historical events, contemporary conflicts, and expert interviews.
