After much pondering, Dan R Allen favored us with:
Unless the order is illegal. And Truman's orders were clearly illegal by any constitutional standards. The whole war was unconstitutional.A military officer who disobeys a superiors orders (unless they are illegal) is not fit to be an officer.
Truman, as Commander-in-Chief, was responsible for more than just the army in the field;The minute that Truman committed troops to the field he only had one responsibility: victory. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this.
