Summary
Veneration for the military is a deeply embedded but fatal flaw in America's collective identity. In twenty yers at West Point, whistleblower Tim Bakken has come to understand how unquestioned faith isolates the U.S. armed forces from civil society and leads to catastrophe. Pervaded by chronic deceit, the military's insular culture elevates blind loyalty above all other values. Bakken makes the case that the culture has has observed at West Point influences whether America starts wars and how it prosecutes them
