Marine Corps Generalship is, in many ways, a different kind of book on leadership. The lessons found in this book are not the views of the author but, rather, a compilation of thoughts taken from the oral histories and from interviews of many of the Marine generals who had the opportunity to put their stamp on the Corps since World War I. Not just an interpretation of an individual’s thoughts, direct quotes form the basis of the entire book. The similarities and differences found in each of the generals’ comments on specific leadership issues and challenges will not only make for informative reading, but also add arrows to anyone’s leadership quiver — military or civilian. As a primer on leadership, this effort is a significant piece of work.
