Major General Aubrey "Red" Newman

Follow Me I:  The Human Element in Leadership
by Aubrey S. Newman
Paperback  (1997)

A reader, 1997       Valuable leadership lessons, drawn from life.
Based on a long-running series of essays in ARMY Magazine, this work is based on the learning and wisdom of a highly decorated officer of wide experience in both command and staff.   General Newman is not only an effective warrior but also a fine teacher able to bring the lessons to life with real examples taken from both peacetime and combat incidents.
While the text is specifically intended for military leaders, the lessons are so universally applicable that it might be said that with their diligent use, one could hardly fail, in any profession.
Volume I is one of three.  While there is some repetition over the three volumes, (due to their origin as periodical essays), this hardly detracts from their usefulness.   Get all three and spend some profitable time in the company of a fine gentleman and a great leader. 

Follow Me II:  More on the Human Element in Leadership
by Aubrey S. Newman
Paperback  (1997)

Follow Me II is the final collection of "Red" Newman's widely read and influential "Forward Edge" columns published in ARMY magazine over a twenty-year span.   Red was virtually a legend in his own time.    His leadership as a regimental commander on Red Beach during the October 1944 Leyte landings in the Philippines inspired the "Follow Me!" painting in the Army in Action poster series.   Through his writings General Newman has had a major influence in the development of generations of U.S. Army leaders.   The articles in Follow Me II, written in Newman's pithy and often poignant style, are filled with nuggets of information of value to leaders and commanders ranging from two stripes to two stars.   General Newman deals with leadership not as a theoretical construct but as a personal tool for motivating real people to accomplish everything from the "ash-and-trash" routines of garrison life to the seemingly impossible demands of combat.   Newman's writing conveys the knowledge and wisdom of a lifetime in the army, both in peacetime and at war, and his devotion to the service and the people who make it a human entity.   Follow Me II is a rare combination of recollections, anecdotes, and incidents that provides important leadership lessons and serves as a window through which the reader can observe and appreciate the "Old Army."

Follow Me III:
Lessons and the Art and Science of High Command

by Aubrey S. Newman
Paperback  (1997)

A reader , August 2, 1997
This, is the third in a set of three compiling General Newman's long-running series of essays in ARMY Magazine.   Volume III contines the lessons, with more emphasis on high command.
While specifically designed for the military leader, General Newman"s principles are universally applicable and will prove useful for anyone in a leadership position.
All three are highly recommended.

One off the great works on strategy in this century Liddell Hart is perhaps one of the greatest military thinkers of this century.  His early works were influential to the german generals, who invented the blitz-krieg doctrine prior to WW2.   And his later works, first of all "Strategy" has been textbook material in military academies throughout the world since WW2.
In "Strategy, The indirect approach" Liddel Hart expands on Clausewitz theories, as they apply to 20th. century warfare.   His basic theory is that the concentration of force against the weak points of the enemy is achieved by mobility - in every sense of the word.   His basic premise is, that the enemy must ever be on the horns of dilemma - that is in doubt of your intentions.   In Liddel Harts thinking, this concept includes: superior use of mobility, the use of multiple possible objectives to confuse the enemy and the ability to concentrate superior force if you do battle.   The sum of Liddell Hart´s theories is a grand strategy, that places the emphasis on superior mobility (of troops and mind) and the ability to create confusion in the enemy - in other words Blitzkrieg.   Furthermore he was one of the first to consider, how a domocratic government would influence military strategy.   In addition to this the book is a great read.
