On civil-military leadership

Vego, Milan N. (2009), Joint Operational Warfare: Theory and Practice (New Port: Naval War College), S. I-43:

¨Ideally, the relationship between the top political leadership and the military should be based on mutual trust and respect. The military leaders must point out to the politicians what the advantages and disadvantages of a certain course of action are, based on their professional military judgment. Yet soldierly obedience should have some limits. If the warnings and advice are not heeded, then the military leaders should take the only honorable course left: resignation.¨
