The original British Army anthology on leadership, used to train generations of officers, brings together the collected wisdom of great military leaders, tacticians and historians with the authentic voices of unkwn soldiers. Moving, inspiring, amusing and thought-provoking, it teaches lessons about motivation, leadership and morale that are every bit as valuable to today's leaders and managers. Complete with a new introduction by Robin Matthews, who commanded the Light Dragoons in Iraq, on the background to 'Serve to Lead' and its relevance to his own career and experiences from Sierra Leone to Afghanistan.
A 'who's who' of British military leaders down the centuries, including the Duke of Wellington, Field Marshals Montgomery and Slim; General Sir John Hackett and Winston Churchill; alongside less familiar writers and military thinkers, and even the voices of anonymous soldiers.
Edward Fraser, Sir John Fortescue, Winston Churchill
