H.R. McMaster, the Warrior Ethos, and the Wars Against the West by FDD published on 2022-01-07T22:32:02Z Lt. Gen. (Ret.) H.R. McMaster is a soldier and a scholar and, these days, a commentator – one might even say a pundit. His recent essay for National Review is titled: “Preserving the Warrior Ethos” – a contrarian theme in an age where the dominant culture valorizes victims and too many political leaders fail to grasp the nexus between military strength and diplomatic effectiveness. He discusses warriors, wars and related topics with "Foreign Podicy" host Cliff May, and Bradley Bowman, senior director of FDD’s Center on Military and Political Power.
