Behind Enemy Lines
Although Burnett failed to follow his flight plan and is consequently shot down, Admiral Reigart feels a responsibility to bring his boy out. How much responsibility should leaders (or parents) shoulder for the misconduct of those under their care? Do you agree with the decision that the Admiral made? Do you think he adequately prepared his soldiers for wartime activities?
Was Burnett’s flyover justified when he discovered the activities of the rebels? How can one country ensure that the other is following the decrees of a treaty without breaking the truce? What would have happened to the villagers if Burnett had not made his discovery?
