What are the sorts of moral decisions that soldiers and civilians take in warfare?
A new book, Moral Combat, confronts us with the ethical questions millions of people faced in their everyday lives during the Second World War, and details the moral difference between the warring parties.
The book's author and historian Professor Michael Burleigh, and former Grenadier Guards officer Patrick Hennessey, discuss how the moral certainties of the Second World War compare to the conflict in Afghanistan.
