"The Kinder, Gentler Military is a devastating critique of how and why the military - the most tradition-bound, masculine institution in the United States - spent the 1990s in a tortured attempt to reform its time-proven warrior culture in favor of a new, politically correct value system, a system that is decimating morale in our armed forces."."In The Kinder, Gentler Military, Gutmann scouts the field - the bases, the boot camps, the ships, and the flight lines - to observe what is often called the "New Military." She then shows why the complete integration of women into the military is physically and sociologically impossible and how the pursuit of this unrealistic ideal is profoundly demoralizing to soldiers of both sexes and a sure setup for battlefield disaster.
