ABSTRACT
Focuses on issues related to moral responsibility and war crimes. View that moral argument is especially important in wartime because the laws of war are radically incomplete; Difference between moral responsibility and legal accountability; View that reparations are surely due to the victims of aggressive war, and they can hardly be collected only from those members of the defeated state who were active supporters of the aggression during the Second World War; Views of J. Glenn Gray in his book "The Warriors" on the Second World War; View that politics is difficult at war time, but there is intellectual work to do that is less difficult--one must describe as graphically as one can the moral reality of war, talk about what it means to force people to fight, analyze the nature of democratic responsibilities.
