SUMMARY

This US Army War College student author examines General Abrams' ethical leadership at all levels of the Army. He concludes that Abrams' ethical leadership was instrumental in the Army's successful handling of racial issues during the 1960's, in enabling the military to conduct an orderly withdrawal from Vietnam, in rebuilding the Army after the Vietnam War, and is still evident in Army organization and leadership today.
