That there is a need to prepare individuals for command is not surprising. Commanders must accomplish their tasks, but they must do so with the minimum cost in lives and within their allocated resource allowance, which is an enormous challenge. The Military Leadership Handbook is a concise and complete manual that identifies, describes, and explains all those concepts, components, and ideas that directly relate to military leadership. The book is a comprehensive compendium that focuses on, among other subjects, cohesion, command, cultural intelligence, discipline, fear, and trust. This applied manual provides invaluable assistance to anyone who wishes to acquire a better understanding of both the theory and application of military leadership. -- Publisher's Description.
