The Warrior Ethos

By: Steven Pressfield

“4th Battalion, 1st Special Warfare Training Group (Airborne) issues the book The Warrior Ethos to new students as they begin the Special Forces Qualification Course … The Warrior Ethos in general terms touches on each of the eight Special Forces Attributes, and the aim in assigning the book is to solidify to the students that the Attributes are not mere words, but something each Soldier must possess and display to be successful in the SFQC and during their service in the SF Regiment.”

—Major Jeff Ortoli, Special Forces Executive Officer, 4/1 SWTG (A)

“The thesis of this book is that what ails you and me has nothing to do with being sick or being wrong.  What ails us is that we are living our lives as amateurs … The solution, this book suggests, is that we turn pro.”
