Summary What happens when Progressives get control of the U.S. Armed Forces? "Safe space" stickers on office doors at the Naval Academy; Officers apologizing for "microagreesions" against Air Force cadets; An Army "gender integration study" urging an end to "hyper-masculinity" in combat-arms units ; PowerPoint presentations teaching commanders about "male pregnancy"; Integration of women into combat infantry units despite overwhelming evidence that it decreases lethality and increases the risk of casualties; A cover-up of the scandalous measures that ensured that the first female candidates would "pass" the Army's legendary Ranger School. In his shocking new book, James Hasson, a former Army captain and decorated Afghanistan veteran, exposes the relentless campaign by progressive activists to remake the U.S. armed forces, even over the explicit objections of the most seasoned military leaders. Hasson presents startling evidence - drawn from government documents and exclusive interviews with more than forty informed sources, including senior generals and Pentagon insiders - that ideologues pursuing a radical social agenda have undermined the combat effectiveness of the American military in ways that put soldiers' lives at risk. Leftist social engineers have inflicted serious, lasting harm on our military, but most of it has been invisible to the public - until now. Wielding outsize power over the armed forces during the Obama administration, progressive political appointees imposed damaging changes that persist today - and will haunt America in its next large-scale war. The devastation that would result from the next progressive Democratic administration is unthinkable. Stand Down is an impeccably documented, clear, and passionate defense of what America's military should be - and how progressives are trying to sabotage it. -- From dust jacket.
