"Orders to kill and die"

This research centers around a `communications` questionnaire I gave to high ranking military officers stationed in Okinawa in the first few days of the Iraq War 2003, combined with the philosophy of famous military leaders and historical empire builders.  The words and phrases that they use to develop courage, leadership, fearlessness and inspire a willingness to kill and die for an ideal are analyzed. As my research is based on presentation skills, the focus is on how revered military leaders effectively communicate these goals (mission) to their subordinates. Language and Culture Journal, Osaka, Prefecture University (February2004) pp. 65-85
