Letter - Youth not turned off Army by 'reality'

I would argue that the slowdown in Army recruitment is rarely to do with the realities of war (Kate Nicholas, 21 July).

I would contend that we live in a world of qualified moral conviction, where the individual often takes precedence over the collective. Other reasons include the decline of both poverty and masculinity.

The reasons for decline in recruitment are a long way from just pictures on the news. Indeed, the British are often far from emotional about the deaths of soldiers - much less than in America.
