Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Imagine yourself in command of a small group of soldiers in a combat situation. You are retreating, taking along with you several enemy prisoners, one of whom is wounded. Speed is of the essence as you head back to your own lines but the wounded prisoner's condition is worsening. This injured prisoner is slowing down the unit thereby endangering everyone. What do you do? It is these types of real world ethical questions that lie at the heart of this chapter in the "Careers With Character" series. In this instance the subject at hand is leadership careers in the military. In tackling this complex subject, Libal provides readers a two-pronged approach to the book: On the one hand Libal does a fine job of carefully detailing the types of careers available, pay expectations, opportunities for promotion, and post service options. On the other hand, the author takes her readers through a fascinating set of chapters each of which focuses on the ethics and values inherent in a reflective career in military leadership. The meat of the matter in this engaging work rests in these latter values based reflective chapters. Readers of this interesting book should come away with both information about a potential military career and questions to ponder about their own character. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
