  • Foreword by Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey, USA (Ret.)
  • Contributors include Gen. Gordon Sullivan, former U.S. Army Chief of Staff; Conrad Crane; Fred Kagan

    This bold, wide-ranging collection brings together some of the most noted military minds, past and present, to examine the crucial role of leadership in combat. Written while Christopher Kolenda was a faculty member in the history department at West Point, it covers both classic and modern concepts of leadership and uses case studies from Alexander the Great through World War II to illustrate principles of leadership in concrete historical contexts.

From the Publisher:

This landmark study is essential for anyone who wishes to understand the passions and the fears, the ideas and the examples that animate the very best leaders in America's military. Leadership: The Warrior's Art is the most important, most penetrating analysis of military leadership to emerge in a generation: a seminal work as the leaders of the armed forces look toward and craft the future.

Selections of Leadership: The Warrior’s Art are being used for instruction at West Point, the Naval War College, the Army War College, the Command and General Staff College, the School of Advanced Military Studies (SAMS), and several ROTC programs for their courses in History and Leadership.

From the Inside Flap:

Since ancient times, outstanding Leadership has seized, excited and motivated peoples to reach for goals which they may not have even dared to dream about on their own. No political order, economic enterprise, or military organization has ever achieved significant success, or even survived, without it. Thus, the Leadership phenomenon has come to be recognized as vital to the life and growth of mankind. Christopher Kolenda’s book has been written while he was a member of the History Department at the United States Military Academy at West Point. To bring us this landmark work he has assembled contributions from some of the most thoughtful minds and practitioners of The Warrior’s Art which the American military has to offer. Shunning more conventional approaches, Kolenda and his colleagues attack the heart of Leadership from the avenues of theory, history and contemporary experience. Collectively, the work is a bold, fresh and broad-scale examination and analysi! s of the single most critical factor in what makes groups drive for success in the face of daunting resistance. It is a volume of monumental significance. -- Army War College Foundation Press

Wow! What a Book! ... The absolute best book on Military Leadership in peace and war I have ever read; brought to life by very readable historical examples from several armies and various wars over the centuries. -- Lieutenant General Harold Moore (USA, Ret), author of "We Were Soldiers Once ... And Young"

Leadership: The Warrior's Art" provides a robust collection of thought-filled essays written by an extraordinary group of accomplished thinkers and leaders. A terrific read, this book is one that will help you add depth and dimension to your storehouse of leadership knowledge. I highly recommend it for military leaders as well as leaders in the public and private sectors. -- Dr. Wess Roberts, author of "Leadership Secrets of Attilla the Hun"

Really good leadership, sad to say, may need a "jump start", and yet it is one of the most precious possessions a society can have. Without it nothing gets done. Chris Kolenda has done a great service in providing that jump start and assembling this remarkable collection of essays and reflections on the subject. Simply stated, his work is a towering accomplishment. He and his colleagues have brought together an outstanding array of writings of enormous importance to students, scholars and men and women of skill and ambition, both in the military services, and in the public and private sector. Additionally, his total grasp is all the more remarkable when one considers his relatively junior status among folks, many of whom are my peers. This book brings together a rich mixture of both theoretical and practical studies of one of the most important elements of any organization. For years to come it should be respected as a major contribution to our understanding of the leader's! role. -- Lieutenant General Julius Becton (USA, Ret.), former Director of the Emergency Planning Office, White House.
