Cadet Diary 2.0: Psychology of Warrior Ethos and Cadet Leadership Development is a natural extension of the earlier book Cadet Diary released in 2018 as requests started pouring in from many countries to also cover new topics that have not been earlier given due attention that they deserve. Hence, this book scrutinizes fresh topics like good military habits, self regulation, development of trust in the military, emergence of women in uniform, leadership challenges in establishing relations characterised by equality in command teams, assessment of morale in military, psychological impact of Artificial Intelligence, value culture in military as well as a novel conception as to how leaders may influence resilient stress responding at the community level to identify leadership effects on resilience. All these topics have immense relevance for leadership development and it is hoped that the reading will provide better insights to officer cadets developing into better military leaders for tomorrow. It is recommended that this book be read in conjunction with the earlier book Cadet Diary
