The article critically analyzes one of the central assumptions of Michael Walzer's version of just war theory, as presented in his main work devoted to war ethics. As requested by the author of Just and Unjust Wars, the controversial nature of the principle of the moral equality of soldiers is revealed by discussing the actual course of events of a historical military conflict – namely, the outbreak of World War II, one of the main issues dealt with in Walzer's book. The exclusion of individual responsibility of people involved in a military operation which finds no moral justification seems to entail a number of consequences that put a heavy burden on Walzer's overall model of military ethics. In order to ensure the necessary level of coherence of just war theory one may need to modify Walzer's principle of the moral equality of soldiers – at least in relation to the participants of total war.
