At last, a leadership book that doesn't have a lot of
corporate stuff in it. I get really tired of those volumes that have the samurai
way, or the military way, or whatever, and then start talking about sales figures and
meetings. This one literally is about leading military units, with specifics and an
explanation of the broader concept of what leadership is for and how each leader in the
chain of command fits together to achieve the goals of the army.
I am a squad leader in the police
academy, a para-military outfit, and the ideas and
advice in this book helped me out a lot. I heartily recommend it for anyone facing
an NCO billet of any kind. Outstanding thought put into this book!!
Great buy! I found this book invaluable as I undertook the task of
leading a platoon. Clear, solid advice on how to lead soldiers to success.
Must read book for anyone in a leadership position. Col. Dandridge has
written an excellent book on how to not only lead a military unit but people. He combines
techniques and real world experiences to educated the reader.
A Study in Military Character and Leadership
by Edgar Puryear, Forrest Pogue
Challenge of Command:
Reading for Military Excellence
by Roger Nye
|Good history and more. Written for the
education of cadets and young officers, this valuable work studies the lives and careers
of Generals Eisenhower, MacArthur,
Marshall, and Patton, through their
own eyes and the recollections of hundreds of others who worked with them and knew them
Nineteen Stars is a laconic, discerning, and professional analysis of the factors which
made Eisenhower, MacArthur, Marshal, and Patton the first-rate
military leaders they were. The author's extensive interviews and correspondence
have revealed many anecdotes and experiences which are published here for the first time.
It is a most interesting, comprehensive and accurate delineation of four of our
country's greatest military leaders and the qualities of military leadership. This
classic study presents the testimony of hundreds of old friends, classmates, subordinates,
and superiors of the four great World War II leaders.
|Reading for every officer. This book is
essential reading for all those who are or hope to some day be military leaders. It
utilises philosophy, ethics, and morals in its discussion of an ideal leader. it is
versatile in that it can be used early in an officer's career to guide him, or later, to
refine him. "The Challenge of Command" should be required reading of all
officers and officer candidates.
Must reading for those in command or aspiring to command! So many times,
officers are thrown into command positions without any real "training."
Questions such as what do I do?, how do I do it?, who do I ask? often top the new
commander's list. Fortunately, Nye has given us a book that combines real world
experiences with knowledge and wisdom from past and present great commanders that can help
new commanders or just those interested in reading about command. I will be a
commander soon and believe me, I will have his book, and many of his recommended readings,
close at hand!
