Old Glory Stories: American Combat Leadership in World War II
Rather than a history of battles and campaigns, this book is an analysis of leadership in combat over three continents and across two oceans. It looks at how soldiers react in war - how sergeants, lieutenants, captains, and generals direct soldiers in the most intense of all human dramas.
