Quelle place pour l’honneur dans la tactique ?

1 Alfred de Vigny, Journal d’un poète, 1867.

2 François Lagrange, “Les combattants de la “mort certaine”. Les sens du sacrifice à l’horizon de la Grande Guerre”, Cultures & Conflits n° 63, autumn 2006. http://www.conflits.org/index2113.html.

3 Clearly illustrated in the Clint Eastwood film Letters from Iwo Jima (2006).

4 Henri Hude, L’Éthique des décideurs, Paris, Presses de la Renaissance, 2004.

5 Michel Goya, La Chair et l’Acier. L’invention de la guerre moderne (1914-1918), Paris, Tallandier, 2004.

6 Such as the Paul Haggis film In the Valley of Elah (2007).

7 Hélie de Saint Marc, Mémoires. Les Champs de braise, Paris, Perrin, 1995.

8 Without exploring in doctrine terms the difference between ethics and morals, ethics is studied in military schools while morals, which are sometimes considered reactionary, are left to the appreciation of each person with reference to their own values, in particular religious values.

9 The subtle distinction between force, which is positive, and violence, which is not, is one example of this. According to the Petit Robert, violence is the act whereby force is exercised as required against the will of the person who suffers from it.

10 Guy Sager, Le Soldat oublié, Paris, Robert Laffont, 1967.

11 A large number of us have already experienced this, and the military institution found it difficult to face the law and the court.

12 Alfred de Vigny, Servitude et Grandeur militaires, 1835.

13 Guy de Maupassant, Boule de Suif et autres nouvelles, 1880.

14 Honour also appears in the Soldier’s Code.

15 The obligation to refuse to obey an order that is clearly illegal is contained in the Regulations on General Discipline.
