MILITARY LEADER SUICIDE
Pp. 32-40 (9)
Suicide by defeated military leaders is well known.
Prominent examples (Eleazar, Brutus, Samsonov, Korechika Anami,
Hatazo Adachi, Himmler, Goring, Goebbels) are detailed, however
others are those who attempted suicide during peace time. The triggers
for these suicides are discussed along with the influence of rank.
Mention is made of the current misrepresentation of the suicide rate of
US troops serving overseas.
