    Which way? I've seen it both and it's my main headline this morning so act quickly, please.

    I've seen it both ways and had enough doubt to seek a second opinion. Simmer down now.

    (I ended up going with 'moral'.)

    I see 227,000 hits on Google for "moral victory" and 5,500 for "morale victory," including the Washington Times.

    Always should be "moral."

    But, if one teammate dies of dysentery, morale will be low.

    Sorry, UP. Don't mean to be crotchety but I can't imagine that anyone would think it would be 'morale." But that's just me. You used good judgement.
