Quotes for Patton on Leadership

In the three years from 1942 to 1945, Patton won a war on the mantra of 'Speed, Simplicity and Boldness.' In the three years from 1995 to 1998, using that same mantra, Warner-Lambert went from a company described as 'amongst the walking dead of the pharmaceutical industry' to an enterprise ranked with the world's top 50 firms in market value. Patton on Leadership provides leaders at every level with deep insights into what shaped Patton's unique leadership style and how he inspired people to victory in the most dire of circumstances.

-Melvin R. Goodes, Chairman and CEO, Warner-Lambert Company

Never thought you could compare General Patton with corporate management. But this book does and does it well.

-Karl Malden, Actor, Renowned for his portrayal of General Omar Bradley in the movie Patton

Mr. Axelrod has written an excellent book about Patton's leadership skills, his approach to winning, his personal attitude, and his methods for results. These are lessons that can be learned and applied in the business community with great ease. If your library does not contain Patton On Leadership: Strategic Lessons for Corporate Warfare, by Alan Axelrod, then your library is not complete. Buy this book, study it, and follow its teachings. You will be a better manager for it.

-Charles M. Province, President/Founder The George S. Patton, Jr. Historical Society

Patton is the personification of leadership projected through the force of personality. Patton on Leadership provides valuable insights into the precepts of this celebrated twentieth century warrior.

-Al Kaltman, Author, Cigars, Whiskey & Winning: Leadership Lessons from General Ulysses S. Grant

What can a civilian corporate leader learn from the combat tactics of General George S. Patton, Jr.? Find out by reading Alan Axelrod's Patton on Leadership. He takes the leadership wisdom of one of America's greatest and most colorful combat Generals and applies it to contemporary civilian corporate organizations. Organized around Patton's quotations and writings, each being related to specific corporate situations, Axelrod presents an in-depth understanding into the General's leadership style and demonstrates that Patton's 'genius was being able to capitalize on his own intuitive notion of leadership.' This book provides a perceptive insight of a leadership methodology that may be a valuable asset to many corporate executives.

-Rutherford B. Johnson, Commander, Georgia Chapter, George S. Patton, Jr. Historical Society

As Sergeant (and Manager) of the Second Armored Division Officers' Club in Ft. Benning, Georgia, I frequently had personal contact with General Patton. Alan Axelrod is right on target with his description of the General and the comparison to corporate warfare. I recommend reading it.

-1st Lt. Henry L. Sobel, U.S. Army (Ret.) 01010072

From the Inside Flap:

"In the Third Army, we knew what General Patton expected us to do, and we believed that if we did it, we would win. That's what generalship is about." -General Omar N. Bradley, A Soldier's Story

As commander of the Third Army, General George S. Patton, Jr.'s wartime success inspired the remarkable performance of his troops, and the grudging admiration of his enemies. Having stormed across France and Germany with lightning speed, Patton revealed himself as a courageous warrior, a gifted strategist, an inspiring communicator, masterful motivator, and, most importantly, a brilliant leader.

Patton on Leadership: Strategic Lessons for Corporate Warfare distills Patton's brilliance into 185 essential lessons every leader must know to win in today's merciless corporate wars.

Vibrant with earthy wit and wisdom that was Patton's hallmark, these lessons show managers how to develop and project a leadership image, communicate effectively across large organizations, establish clear priorities, build a winning team, mentor future leaders, resolve conflict, sustain optimum performance against all obstacles, and instill the kind of loyalty that inspires consistent outstanding achievement.

In a work equally engaging to current or future managers and history buffs alike, General Patton's leadership in battle is turned into the ultimate manual for victory.

Alan Axelrod, noted for his history and biography titles, is the best-selling author of What Every American Should Know About American History.

Phillips and Sun Tzu's The Art of War.
