This is a very old article, but it is as applicable today as if it were written today. It is a fairly lengthy article, but it raises issues that apply not only to making ethical decisions within the wartime and peacetime Army, but also in any other profession.

Back when I was an Air Force Officer (a bit before this article was written), I was told that the number one concern expressed by Captains attending Squadron Officers' School was the lack of integrity in senior officers... so much so that they were forbidden
to bring it up it in discussion groups.
You have to take high-sounding essays like this in context; the people who wrote them were almost always seen by their juniors as careerist bureaucrats indulging in a little self-flattery.
Wesley Clark was not and is not all that much of an exception.
