From the Publisher: This latest edition of an official U.S. Government military history classic provides an authoritative historical survey of the organization and accomplishments of the United States Army. This scholarly yet readable book is designed to inculcate an awareness of our nation's military past and to demonstrate that the study of military history is an essential ingredient in leadership development. It is also an essential addition to any personal military history library.
The material in this manual is based on an analysis of outstanding leadership displayed by both military and civilian leaders. Although these leaders were not all of the same pattern, and did not use the same methods of attaining success-all of them successfully applied some or all of the principles and techniques of leadership contained in this manual. A thorough study of these principles and techniques, combined with actual troop application, will help to develop and foster the high standard of leadership so urgently demanded by the complexities of modern warfare. In the final analysis, war is still waged by men.
