Few people over the last century are better qualified to discuss leadership than Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, the charismatic and idiosyncratic Second World War leader. It was a subject to which he devoted much thought. 'In one short sentence, it is captaincy that counts', he writes. Using personal studies of famous political military and industrial figures, Monty analyses the qualities that make for effective leadership. Being, by any definition, a frank and honest man he does not hesitate to highlight perceived deficiencies. Among his case studies are the Generals of the two world wars, Haig, French, Gort, Wavell and Alexander. Political leaders include Cromwell and Nehru, Khrushchev, de Gaulle and Mao. In this edition a fascination and contentious comparison of Churchill and Eisenhower appears for the first time. SELLING POINTS: 'Monty' remains a household name. His leadership was exceptional. His frank views on his contemporaries, all leading world figures make for fascinating reading, if often controversial and amazingly tactless! Many lessons on how to inspire and lead men and women exist within these pages. This edition includes a previously unpublished comparison of the styles of Churchill and Eisenhower, considered too sensitive even by the author in 1960. * Foreword by Viscount Montgomery CBE
